This is a X10 mailing.  Can't get worse than this.  I selected
format HTML.  I notice the images are note loaded.....but I can edit
in the text below.

Yes, but if you look below, there are various bits of text I have
added to the email you sent me and it has inserted the text into the
email I've replied to so that it looks like it's part of the original
email, not text I've added. So I can do the same in plain text...  I
mean what do you expect?  If you screw with the note, you screw with
the note.  In some places it behaves properly, but those are the
places where tables aren't involved.  Yeah tables foobar a lot in HTML
in The browser and html editors as well.

I sort of expect the behaviour if it is HTML email, but it happens
even if you compose the mail as plain text because the underlying
editor retains the HTML formatting even when editing text.

Now this is a problem when cutting and pasting from mozilla or
openoffice.  It is a royal pain.  I wind up pasting to a terminal
running vi, and then re-hiliting and pasting into evo.

For instance the following text appears to be in a text box of some
kind.  I cut and pasted from CNN.com's home page.  If I hi-lite and
paste the following text from within evo, it pastes as a text box, thus
the screwed up paragraphs below.

ps I've copied this to the evolution list so that others can see what
