Hotmail (MSN/Microsoft) and (X)HTML are a classic oxymoron. The same goes for
CSS, let alone ActiveX controls. With bgsound, font sizes that are
quantified in Pt and so forth, quite frankly, I could not care less about
how Hotmail handles HTML. It probably gets worse when it generates HTML and
sends it to others. When my Supervisor sends me a one-line E-mail in Outlook
(without special formatting), the message size is 38KB.
