   The complaint was presumably in reference to the HTML posting that was
attached to your message.  Not only does the HTML version more than double
the size of the message ( because it duplicates the original text ) it also
adds a large amount of useless HTML tags.  Not to mention that many ( if
not most ) people use e-mail software that doesn't interpret HTML.
