Re: [PLUG] Thunderbird questions


Looks good!  Came through with bold, italics, big font, exactly as
you described.

Be aware though that people on this list seem to pretty strongly
prefer plain text emails.  I've heard some say that they even filter
their email, auto-deleting any HTML-formatted emails.  Personally,
I don't care, but I try to always remember to tell TBird to format
as plain text when sending to this list.

Here's the answer to your question about double spacing:

Diacritical marks are going to be a Unicode thing, like umlauts,
etc.  Whatever technique you use to type them into any app on
your Linux box, it should work the same for TBird.

This will be a reply from TB.  I'd first like y'all to notice the signature added at the bottom of

this message.  This comes from the .signature filethat I have in my home computer, which

file, .signature, changes every day.   I am, for some reason, back to double spaces

In Ubuntu the TB menus are at the top of the screen ( not on TB itself )
you may have to hover the mouse up at the top of the screen for them to appear.
/Ubuntu must be different(hey, my change to Italics worked!)  I am running Debian jessie.

OK, enough fooling around.  Please treat this message as a jeux d'esprit.  Doe TB have diacritical
