Whoa! NOW I've SEEN the light, Brother! I've been wondering what to do
with this hemp t-shirt, now I'll wear it (since there are no hairy
camels around to make yarn from) and put some sprinkles to it instead of
ashes. True penitence.  

For what it's worth, I tried mightily to make Evolution accept a cut and
pasting of a copied image directly to an html email page and it didn't
work for me. If you inserted the image as a background image then the
entire page would have that image with text on top of it, and would be
one way to go. That worked. Just tell your Sis that "...this is Linux so
be creative." :) 

OTOH, on a java related list, a Windows user was having problems with a
process run from: 
C:\Programs and Documents\user\JOE BLOW\ etc  
"IT DON'T WORK!" Well, Hell no it doesn't ...not with all those spaces
in the directory names. Windows users anyway. I think it's all a Gates
conspiracy to make Linux users crazy and Windows users fear and loathe
us. It seems to be working, too. <cackles> Good Luck with your
Sis'll need it. :) Ric
