Mac OS X Since my Cube could not run Leopard, and I did not have any other Macs, I was unable to delve into Leopard right away. Apple NL was kind enough to fix this problem for us, by generously loaning me a brand new MacBook with Leopard installed so I could review it for OSNews. Read on for the findings.

I have a better question for you. What benefit does HTML email give ANYONE?

* The ability to add emphasis, something we do all the time in e.g. these article comments

* The ability to add simple structure, which is really helpful if you are writing a longer e-mail with some sub headings.

* The ability to use real links instead of using third-party services like tinyurl just because plain text e-mails force you to show the full urls all the time.

* The ability to put an image where it makes the most sense in the context. For example, when comparing things, you can immediately show what you mean instead of writing e.g. "see attachment xyz.jpg."

* The ability to present relevant data in a structured table without a lot of tedious manual ascii formatting work.

* The ability to do all of the above without resorting to an attachment, forcing you to use two separate programs to read an e-mail!
