    Must be. This afternoon I tried posting the headers but something in
    it made Agent deciding against it.

    I sure many more posters are using Outlook Express, Gummo.
    Obviously this is what you used here as well.
    I'm glad your problem with the fonts are solved.
    KatWoman came to the rescue of many more a problem.

    I can see the HTML cause I have it set to accept that in IE

    but to reply it will warn me before sending to change back to plain text
    for this group (it pops a warning box saying approve to send as HTML or
    change to plain text)
    it is a binary group only plain text allowed

    It's funny John, I did receive said post
    exactly the same as this, plain text with a link.
    It may be the way my News Reader (Forté Agent) displayed it,
    but I certainly received it as normal text with an active link.
    Never mind, we have lots more to share than to differ about:)
    'till later

    It's called 'Rich Text', Dave, a crossbreed between Plain and HTML

    But Fred, I have never seen News Groups displaying Rich Text.
    And I am using Rich Text since early September 1903.
    With Rich Text, fonts sizes can be varied and sentences can be
    underlined, which I would sometimes love to do, but here it keep on
    being plain text.

    Well, you are much older than I thought!

    It's probably a setting in your newsclient that renders html and 'rich text'
    as plain.

    A previous version of Thunderbird allowed one to set the reply according to
    the source.

    IAE, I don't view the occasional posting with an html tag as an heinous

    Here, now is an html posting; I had to change the settings to always reply
    in html, not so good for NGs.

    But I am going to use but two props: Size and color on the remainder of the
    post. It'll be red and large for those whose readers "honor" the html
    attributes, and black and regular for those whose don't.

    you are very welcome

    took me forever to realize there even was a character palette, and find all
    the options for type layout in it.
    I thought all the text options were up top in the bar, and thought I had to
    use Illy or other layout program to get more sophisticated choices, like
    spacing kerning

    good to know as well>>you can use the transform tool on text without
    rasterizing (still editable)

    Well, for me, an old annoyance has become a new asset to explore.

    The issue is quite clear now. The OP has a misconfigured news client
    that does double duty as an email program.

    Outlook express can be set to send HTML or plain text to news groups.
    News raders which comply 100% with the RFCs for news messages (like I
    use) will display the entire message looking like a web page seen as
    "view source" by a browser.

    More flexible news readers will remove the HTML and just display the
    text. Outlook Express doesn't just send the HTML it also sends a plain
    text notation at the start of the message just in case the news server
    rejects HTML messages. BLOAT CODE. It is this that non compliant and
    advanced news readers use to strip out the HTML scripting.

    News groups are textural in nature and for the most part, many news
    servers faced with a pure HTML message will plonk it. Others will strip
    out the text and only display that.

    My Berlin host server is 100% in complliance with the RFCs for news
    group posting and provided there is plain text at the front of the
    message, will display the whole thing, presuming someone is providing an
    example of something and not sending a pure HTML message.

    I repeat my earlier message. "It is bad kama to send HTML messages to a
    text only news group." Something no one can deny.

    Thanks for this detailed explanation, Jurgen.
    This of course, explain why we had different views.
    Sorry if I said something sounding more harsh then meant.
    This is something to remember.
    'kama', is this like in 'karma'?
