I'm also on a Mac (several listmates are), but haveno trouble with posts --
now or even before the change. The characters you show are HTML code. <BR>
stands for "line break," while   stands for an added "space"
(non-breaking space). MIME/Base 64 is standard encoding for Windows, just as
BinHex is for a Mac.
REBECCA THOMPSON gave a good explanation this morning of how to switch from
HTML to plain text settings for just a single listing in your OE address
book. Great suggestion! Refer to her post: "ANOTHER REMINDER."
