My mistake Rob.  Because your mail contained xml tags 'excerpt' and 
'italic' (I'm not using > and < chars because the spam filters are 
supposed to hold such mail for moderating - sometime they do, sometimes 
they don't) my Thunderbird rendered it just like html.

I should have checked the source. Sorry.

For some reason Thunderthing also stopped linewrapping at 72 like it has 
been told to.  (and now it's gone back to, too!).  I dunno why that 
happened, Bryan.
