What's with all the angle brackets lately? Yes, this was discussed a few weeks ago, but in the context of long URLs that don't fit on a single line. I still wouldn't mind - except for, to repeat myself, that the closing greater-than gets parsed as a part of the URL at least on the Listserv web interface, possibly also with some mailers? So when you are using the brackets with short URLs, you're not avoiding breiking the URL by carriage returns, but you ARE adding a bogus caracter to the URL that at least some of us need to remoov by hand. I also skimmed thru the original discussion and didn't notice anyone saying that links DON'T work for them without the brackets. Unless someone is going to stand up as such, can y'all consider stopping bracketing URLs that fit on a single line? Pretty please? John Vertical
