Re: attachments

It depends whether or not you are reading the list in 'digest' mode
(which is an option on your AUDITORY information page, URL in the email
you received when you first subscribed).  If you receive each posting as
a separate message, attachments probably work fine.  But if you receive
the once-daily 'digest', where all messages are run together, many mail
reading programs will not be able to parse them apart and pick out
individual attachments, but instead show the binary-coded attachement
as very large blocks of text.

For this reason, it's better to send only plain text ascii to the list,
and reference other files by including URLs if possible.  If there's a
file that you'd like to publish but you don't have a web site to put it
on, you can send it to me and I can host it on www.auditory.org.
