    And thus, bikeshedding was had by all.

    Good summary :-)

    There are in the thread, hiding, little jewels or bombs. Like one about
    AA versions is pretty interesting case study.


    (no, I will not explain. I'm craving for bed, and I didn't fully
    understand it enough for explaining, anyway :-) )

    Yep.

    I did, time ago and just for testing, sent html nntp posts here, and on
    Thunderbird they display nicely. Fonts et all. Of course, all that was
    lost on the web side. Pity, but fully understandable.

    (no, I don't suggest adding support for it. Just talking :-) )

    Indeed it was, sadly. With alligators arriving, fortunately those that could returned to "draining the swamp".
    Leap 42.3 (ext4, KDE Plasma 5.8.7) ~ stable
    Manjaro (ext4, Xfce) ~ rolling updates
    Tumbleweed (ext4, KDE Plasma5) ~ managed updates via "Tumbleweed Snapshots" service.

    I'm glad you saw it as intended.

    Yeah, many readers (including the one I use) don't have HTML rendering
    capabilities, and text-based ones like slrn, trn, and so on don't have it
    either. It's certainly not a "standard" feature of readers, even though
    it's clearly possible to do.
