I have to agree. We should be thankful that some OM try to share extensive
information with fellow DXers. We all get HCDX for free, the mailing list
as well as the information therein.
It would make more sense to ask how a specific file has to be treated to
get the desired result. If someone should have problems using a Macintosh
computer, I am willing to help.
But as the problems seems to be harder in the Windows world, perhaps
someone can write a FAQ about the handling of attached files - I suppose
such a help will be available already via WWW. All the software one might
need is available as Free- or Shareware via Internet. Just invest some
hours of time once, and you will be able to enjoy the advantages of
formatted text for the future.
