Dear All:

This is an administrative request.
All of you must be seeing some strange characters showing up on SEFI mails once in a while. It makes the reading of the email very difficult and irritating. This is because some of the emails are written in rich text format and using special fonts, italics, bold, underscore. The discussion forum does not support these. Hence please desist from this. Write all emails in plain text  so that all emails are legible.

Thanks and regards,

Dear Alpa,

Actually, the 'strange characters' crop up when a mail is sent in HTML mode.
If you have noticed, the most common characters are   which is HTMLese
for the innocuous 'non-breaking space'.

One way of avoiding this would be to send all messages in text mode. Another
way would be at the SEFI server end. Simply changing Content-type from
multipart/mixed to text/html would do the trick.

Regards,
Rudra Nevatia

Dear Mr Nevatia:

Thanks for the additinal info. Yes,  as you rightly say HTML (also called Rich Text in the Outlook Express) is the main culprit for the strange characters.

Unfortunately, it is difficult for us to correct  it at server stage presently, hence we would request SEFI correspondents to use plain text mode.

Regards,
