I personally don't have a big problem with it; needlessly increasing file size by >400% is nothing these days and I can live with having to click an extra one or two times and having to cut & paste if I want to quote. Trying to be compatible with the reader's software went out many versions of HTML ago and of course today's traditional standard response to someone's "I'm having trouble reading your (and *only* your) web page/email/whatever" usually is "well, just upgrade your browser/email client/operating system etc." with an explanation why that is "necessary"; as I said, if it really bothers me I can just automatically send those messages to trash. It's just disappointing somehow to see it as the default response in places like this that deal with vintage computer systems, where the challenges and frustrations of incompatibility are a constant issue... ----- Original Message ----- From: "Rhialto" <email@example.com> To: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Sent: Saturday, April 26, 2014 7:10 AM Subject: Re: Rhialto, Why...
