[Phys-l] Why to trim (not reply w/ full quote). Was: Re: art of teaching #2

RH missed another very important point. At least one list, of which I'm a member, is incapable of translating HTML, as a result originally rich or HTML text in the digest version is filled w/ those dammed tags if one replies w/ rich text.

bc thinks it rather strange that that list is hosted by the AAPT.
