Welcome to the list! :-)

It does not automatically do that, so the preferred way is to insert line breaks. Many mail clients handle wrapped lines well, however, so if breaking lines bothers you a lot, it probably does not matter much to keep long lines.

No. That's HTML, which does not work on the list. So for writing < and >, simply use < and > -- no quotation needed.

It used to be broken so you had to explicitly set the reply-to to the conlang list before posting, but I suppose it was repaired so that it is possible to switch off the reply-to header, which is the preferred setting for this list (unless, of course, you want people to reply to you personally). Could some knowing GMail user confirm that the reply-to issue is solved? I'd then change the welcome message accordingly. Mr Veoler, enjoy the list! **Henrik
