[Xmca-l] Re: Formatting problem



Mike

     Actually your original message and this message of yours look like they have a ‘carriage return’ imbedded in the text (i.e. the lines are too short when I resize the screen of the email reader). However, Michael’s original post does not and, oddly enough, the copy of your original page in his post doesn’t either. 

      The last time I paid attention to this problem it seemed to also depend on whether things were be read on a Mac vs a PC (as the way a ‘return’ is signaled is different  or used to be) and it probably varies depending on your email reader. On the Mac, at least, it is best that you have as little formatting as possible as the screen size of the email reader, in a sense, formats.
