I am not using Outlook as my newsreader, I use Forte Free Agent and it
does not handle HTML. I think that many others do not either.

I noted that a thread that starts out as HTML switches back to
plaintext as soon as you respond to it. But about 90% of the threads
come up as nonreadable HTML coded stuff now and this was definitely
not the case before the feed stop a week ago.

Obviously the messages from Yahoo come as HTML (complete with heavy
picture attachments and all) unless the subscriber does something
about it. In this case whatever it was Tony had running before in the
way of filtering programs has been switched off now and the HTML comes
through. Which makes it impossible for me to read the stuff....
