As far as I know I am sending in plain text (NOT HTML)
with nothing special about my messages. BIMBW.

- Is anyone else being affected by the format of my posts?
 (as opposed to the content :-))

- If the problem is not at my end, is anyone aware of what may be
 wrong and what is different about my email to cause this?

 You're sending just plain text here, Russell.  We could call it a
Win98 "bug" but I suspect it's not - if you send plain text, it's
appropriate for a reply to be in plain text, period!  (HTML responses to
plaintext messages -would- be a bug, IMHO.)  And this will display in a
monospace font like Courier, not the proportionally spaced font that
HTML usually displays in.

 BTW, Do see this line in your headers;
                     text/plain; charset="x-user-defined"

that's it, I think it's Monospace font size.

 Probably, jhumby could change his/her default -monospaced- font to
make plain text show smaller than it apparently currently does, I'd bet
they're used to a proportionally spaced font?  Pretty sure you can do
that under Win98. (About to find out, am installing my dad's Win98
upgrade for him tonight on his old 486DX2/66, 20 Mb, machine.  Gonna be
