:Does Steward like HTML and/or does he support full-fledged
:Mime or RichText?  Or File Attachments?
:In other words, can I imbed pretty pictures, flow charts, and
:Dilbert cartoons into my posts to irritate the HTML impaired?	
:Can I embed bold/italics/underline fonts to enhance and confuse
:readers of my posts?
:I understand this might be bad form in most of the NGs, but in all
:seriousness would it be advantageous to present technical
:concepts along with event diagrams, STDs, object diagrams?
:Is there a preferred acceptable format for this? (.gif, .jpg, etc.)
:Will Steward have capacity to support this sort of thing?
:Or more importantly, will you or your mailboxes object to this blatant
:spamming?

Being an old fart, I started reading email with UNIX 'mail', which just
dumps the text to my shell window. Here on my Amiga I use something
similar. It doesn't grok *anything*, other than a few of the oldest
header lines. Any attachments, I have to handle manually. So, I'd
prefer to keep the information level high - i.e. no unneeded pictures,
sound samples etc. If the picture is worth 1000 words, then by all means
encode it (uuencode preferred here, or base64 if necessary) and send it.
