It has been posted several times in recent months to not use MIME or HTML
for messages to the list. This is the first I recall of anyone asking
specific individuals. Thanks for responding.

I wish I could tell you. I do not use Outlook, because of its security
problems, nor do I use IE. In PC Netscape Messenger it is accessed under
Edit, Preferences, Mail and Newsgroups, Formatting. Click on the "use plain
text" button. It will be different on MACs, probably, and certainly for
other mail editors.
I hope someone can post the same information for IE and MACs and maybe
Eudora, for they certainly seem to hide this option in most editors. :-)
PS Your messages are hard to read because Microsoft deliberately violates
the color conventions in HTML/MIME to give others grief. Your text is
fine-line teensy black letters on a brown background, and almost illegible
as a result. It is totally unreadable on many Unix-like systems, for MIME is
a PC/MAC-specific protocal.
PPS. Ob. killies. *My* *Fp. gardneri nigerianus* Akamkpa ( from Sandy) are
coloring up nicely, but I see no dark Morphs, so far (unless they all are
and I don't know the diff.). :-)
