      Well duh, why didn't I realize that?  What had me fooled was that it 
seemed to read the password.  I realize now it was reading and stripping 
the text password, and ignoring the one in the html.  And I don't see any 
easy way around that.
      I may have it beat.  I send the message in plain text, with the 
approved header on the top, and then the html code below that.  It comes 
out right when received by Eudora, and I assume would be good in others, 
but anyone reading plain text only is going to get code I think.
