I believe you are correct regarding the EGM. Thanks for clarifying that point.

Regarding the line length, I presume most users use "word-wrap" for their email readers. This allows the reader to format the screen as desired (similar to the way web browsers handle text). I believe all HTML compatible email programs have this capability.

The big advantage of handling email this way is that when the line lengths increase due to the > or > > or > > > which stack-up with each reply, the email remains completely readable and well formatted. (I'm sure everyone has received the email which is littered with tons of > > > > > > > > > and barely intelligible.)

If this is a general problem for other readers, let me know and I will add the line breaks for any additional posts to this group.
