Thanks for those pointers.

The message is a "digest" containing between 1 and 20 messages.  The 
"index" is in the main message, and all the actual messages are encoded 
as attachments.  I also see actual attachments, and sometimes signatures 
as attachments.  But the ones I'm talking about have extension .eml.

If I have a direct message with a Re: at the beginning, Thunderbird does 
not add an extra one to my reply subject.  Only when I'm doing it on one 
of these attachments.

I don't know about any others other than *bold* text.  And I don't know 
if it shows up in everyone's viewer that way, or just some.
