	Just slapping a text-format footer onto the bottom of an 
HTML-formatted message may or may not work, depending on the 
receiving MUA.  It might display fine for you, but not for someone 
else.  Even if you have the same program and version as someone else, 
your configuration might be different, and that might effect how 
things like this are displayed.

	The problem is how to embed something like this within the HTML, 
so that it would work for everyone.  And there is no easy answer for 
that question.
