I suppose you mean the missing image in the email, just below the line
with Hagar's name?

That's just a png of the logo used on the forum, and like the others was
embedded in the mail, from copies on my local disc, using Evolution. I
suppose also it's the fact images are stripped for the missing gaphics..
*duh*.

Actually, the image/link to the forum shows another small issue - the
linked page still brands to Oracle.. I'll see if I can look after that
with a minimum of fuss.

Otherwise - the newsletters referenced by Kay, they where using HTML,
just not any graphics..hmm, maybe that's a blog version of the basic
content :)
