First, to Jon, thanks for the comment. Probably true that it's a bit more 
obvious. The actual code that I posted was from a small program that was 
copy/pasted together and modified a couple dozen ways in order to get something 
to work. Though I tried to keep the code readable, some aspects naturally 
suffered. Your way may be better in this case and in most cases.

But more importantly, I'm curious if everyone else sees a bunch of "=A0" 
strings in what I've posted and various "=" characters at end-of-line where 
words break instead of word-wrap. (The included 'Reply' text above has some, 
but what about the rest of the text in this note?)

I set up some Netscape Webmail accounts and was experimenting with them. If the 
messages are going to look that bad and be unreadable, I'll take care with what 
I subject you other subscribers to.

   Any complaints about this note?
   How's it look?

(I'm curious about the leading blanks on those previous lines.)
