I'd almost swear that somewhere 5-10 years ago, there was the beginning of a 'standard' for .sigs that said something like "a line containing only two dashes followed by a space, e.g., '-- ', would mark the beginning of a .sig attachment. This will allow replies to remove such attachments automatically." Some e-mail clients seem to recognize '-- ' or some other configureable string and ignore following lines when spell-checking, etc. Unfortunately, all the different ways of denoting included Reply: text (indents, "> ", etc.) make it effectively impossible to keep up with. Nowadays, I imagine some kind of MIME boundary would have to be used.
