You pick CSS 2 from the profile menu (I think it might be hidden behind  
"more options" or similar).

My understanding of CSS 2.1 is that it removes properties which lack  
support (2 independent implementations), font-stretch is likely a victim  
of this.

"In the mailing list"? Do you mean your email client? That would depend on  
what email client you are using. Many will only quote selected text if any  
text is selected, its possible you selected a space.
