Subject RE: Line Breaks and Not
Date Fri, 25 Nov 2011 06:42:08 GMT
My usual e-mail plaintext format does not have fixed line breaks inside 
paragraphs.  That allows reflow in accordance with the recipients e-mail 
browser window parameters (just like with web pages).

Because there are still many clients that won't reflow, and many users here 
expect hard line breaks in paragraphs, my approach is to sign those e-mails. 
The digital signature technique adds line breaks and other normalizations to 
ensure that no intermediary or recipient breaks the signature.

I did not make any line breaks in the two preceding paragraphs.

I am signing this e-mail so that you will receive it broken up the way that it 
is readable for you but I don't have to make the change for everyone I send 
mail to.

I still forget to do this from time to time.

How comes that the text is sometimes well formatting and like in this
mail it's only one long unwrapped line.

So, sorry if my hand-quoted text is worse.
