Unfortunately, when I looked further there were other odd items mingled in the text and HTML include "= " and some non-English characters, so just removing the 3D isn't enough, and since in my client it becomes a double quote, simply discarding could invalidate the HTML (say a URL with a space), and yes, I need to keep this stuff looking right, including the HTML. -----Original Message----- From: rick.baird@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:rick.baird@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx] Sent: Tue 3/23/2004 1:20 PM To: Midrange Systems Technical Discussion Cc: Subject: Re: Decode e-mail? Rick I don't know much about what appears in email, but a few thoughts. unless you're trying to reformat the email EXACTLY as it would appear in a client, I'd replace anything and everything that appears between "< and >" (including the ") with a CRLF, and process the rest of the email as unformated text. it appears that the '3D' stuff is some way of escaping a value somehow. i'm sure it's not taken literally anyway - take away the 3D from those html name value pairs, and you have very valid html formatting values. hth Rick .
