	These two are actually a result of the same thing -- the Mailman 
code scrubs input text from the web interface, to try to prevent 
cross-site scripting attacks.  If you want this stuff to show up 
correctly, you will need to edit the template files directly as 
opposed to using the web interface.

	If you go back and use the web interface to edit that text again, 
it will get re-scrubbed, so once you go the template route, you need 
to stick with editing those files directly.
