Just don't open exe. files from someone you don't know. It's awfully simple and
will save you a lot of headaches.

Whatever you don't don't post in HTML to Usenet. It is bad manners.

Anyhow, anyone who runs _any_ .EXE files sent to them as an email
attachment, needs to re-think their strategy.

Joe Blow,

   It wasn't an HTML file. It was increased FONT SIZES and BOLD type. Didn't know this
would come out like that.

Just some input.

The only way text formatting such as font changes and coloring can be
implemented on the net is via html.....barring a attached WP file anyway...

So if do not you want to post html, try to stay away from accenting your
text with font/color changes.

Regards

Not quite true. Rich Text (Thank you Bill Gates, you a**hole) from Microsoft
does it also, and in this case that's what it was.

Came out fine over here. All I saw was the modified text, no HTML.

Interesting. It may have been done somewhere inline, but somehow what I am
seeing is HTML including the doc header

        !doctype html public "-//w3c//dtd html 4.0 transitional//en"
