Odds and Ends: Mail formatting restrictions; Knowledge Base updates

Mail formatting restrictions Reader Ben Rosenthal points out a logical, but confusing, issue with message formatting in OS X's Mail application: You can use OS X's Fonts panel to choose fonts and font formatting, but some of this formatting is stripped before the message reaches the recipient.

The reason for this is that although the text engine used by Mail for composing messages supports all the formatting options in the Fonts panel, the message format -- the format in which the message is sent -- may not. For many users, this can lead to confusing and unexpected behavior. We agree with Ben that if you can't send mail with a particular format -- for example, strikethrough -- Mail shouldn't let you use that format when composing the message.
