Re: HTML email [was: Re: [nvda] Download of the Weather Plus add-on]


I see that as plain text, but not your other message

Hello Gene,

My was the problematic message. I use Mozilla Thunderbird version 52.3.0. I've started sending messages only in HTML a long time ago, but only now someone complains that they are hard to read when viewing them as plain text due to the HTML code showing in the plain text. The HTML code shouldn't show in a message when viewing it as plain text, but in this case apparently it does. One of the persons having problems with my message is using KMail under Linux and the other is probably viewing it via the interface via a web browser, though I don't know if this matters or not. The unusual thing in my problematic message were a few (two, to be exact) emojies that I've inserted via the "Emoticons" add-on for NVDA. Maybe that caused the issue - I don't know. If it is that, in the future I'll try to avoid inserting emojies in my messages (at least for this list).

Best wishes,
Kostadin Kolev

It may be that a text message should be sent.  It might be useful to know what e-mail application is being used by the original sender. 


I've seen very little about this but I think I read somewhere that sending HTML only messages is mor common than it used to be.  I'm curious to know what e-mail programs have problems rendering such messages when reading mail as plain text?  What program are you using?

I get the same


I don’t know what has happened in that particular message but its showing the html code along with the message in plain text, so is difficult to read with a scfeen reader

I don’t see this happening very often but I’m pretty sure it wont be the mail app I’m using

But rather how the  message was created by the sender

Which e-mail program are you using?  I am reading mail as plain text and I have no such problems.  You may have problems elsewhere and it might be useful to discuss the matter.

Please could you avoid posting HTML-only emails to the list?

Post either plain-text or plain-text plus HTML, but please not just the HTML.

It makes things very difficult to read for those of us who prefer text-only
