Well... I only meant special in the sense of the use case... not the
HTML code that would be needed.

I wouldn't have had a clue what you're talking about here, but maybe
you're talking about the Vi-in-Emacs feature Barry mentioned?
If so, that's fine - I'm not suggesting that the current digest
offerings be changed in any way, shape or form, so implementation of
this feature request wouldn't affect your users in the slightest.

Nor do I, but I don't use Vi-in-Emacs, so my feature request is to allow
a way for people who don't use it to be able to use digests but not have
to page through messages they don't care about to get to the ones they
do, and easily interact with them without breaking threading for
Oh - and if you aren't talking about Vi-in-Emacs, no offense was
intended, and I'd really like to know what you meant by 'view the
messages in a digest in an email folder'... :)

See above. No one would force anyone to choose this new digest version.

Ya think? ;)

Thanks, I'll do one of those tomorrow (gotta run now)...

I know - I've really been making a nuisance of myself on the Mozilla
Bugzilla for that very reason...
