I merely quoted that, Warren, but it does impact me. I'll survive it
either way. :)

GMail appears to accept MIME, and I can see embedded MIME tables,
etc., but the non-text stuff doesn't survive the reply-quoting process
very well.

Actually, given that the output of the quoting process is very usable
indented plain text, I think Google did a very good job considering
that GMail is a free service from a commercial, for-profit company.
