right, the option is for display. I do not know what you mean with
'transfer', is it like the 'Forward' function? The 'answer' might be
'Reply', right? Nonetheless, none of the three are handled by the

You should understand that the sender has some intention to present
content in certain way. That it makes it difficult to read for the
recipients is solely their fault, from my point of view. The mail
reader software can have workarounds to "correct" it, but they'll be
just workarounds of their fault. You bet that every sender uses
own special formatting, which will break the workarounds easily.

Similarly, that the black color works fine for you doesn't mean that
works fine for others. I just received a message with the text
in magenta color, all being in italic. It was hard to read for me,
it seems the sender likes this (for me weird) combination. I think,

Evolution doesn't fully handle black themes/accessibility.

I'm sorry to say this, but even it might look simple to some people,
it's obviously a complex task when one knows something about HTML and
CSS. There are too many possibilities to handle.

Yes, I had a significant background on HTML/CSS but had to quit just
when HTML5 pop out, because brain damage. I totally figure out what you

weird to me.

It would be great to have a button to break formating and

Because no need to wait to be disabled to have seeing issues nor italic

I'm not in anymore, just simple thoughts.

Thank you.
