28 messages already about colors, pixels, opacity, transparency, brightness,
font size - I'd wish I'd have your problems... (in German: "Eure Probleme
möchte ich haben...").

Is anyone still open to a discussion about the more technical side of
things? E.g. indicating attachments in the message list of
multipart/alternative messages with a nested multipart/mixed part? Or "least
invasive" charset declarations (e.g. declaring "US-ASCII" or "ISO-8859-1"
rather than "UTF-8" if "US-ASCII" or "ISO-8859-1" would be "just enough" -
and yes, I know that "UTF-8" is always correct)?
