Better give KMail a twap upside the head? Why is it including a Reply-To
that's identical to your From field?

Which channel was this in, BTW?

I hope that was in re the below and not in general? :-)

Konq seems to be choosing a squeezed font for some reason. I'll look into
it and see if there is anything we can do to make it choose a better font.
In general though, we chosen some specific fonts to make MSIE:win do a
better job -- i.e. set font-family to semi-decent `doze fonts -- leaving
the generic "sans-serif" for other platforms. I don't know why Konq isn't
using it's default sens-serif font.

My Opera 6.02 OTOH seems to show it just fine. Can you be more specific?

Heh! I tried leaving out the "limitations" bit and got jumped on;
"Damned if you do..." etc. :-)

The "document located at" bit OTOH was intended to be /less/ scary then
that table of technical gibberish that was there before. The URI is less
visible of course, but that's under the assumption that a) you know what
page you just tried to validate, and b) the URI isn't all that interesting,
it's the Valid vs. Invalid that's important.

Suggestions for how to make it less scary?
