Hi Marco, and welcome.

Others have already answered your question, but please don't post HTML 
formatted messages (so-called "rich text") to this mailing list. It is 
mirrored to a newsgroup, comp.lang.python, and many people read it via 
that. To many of those people your message will be entirely blocked due 
to the use of HTML code, and for many of the remaining, they will see 
this:

> <html xmlns:v="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:vml"

which then goes on in that style for another NINE PAGES.

(Oh, and I don't want to come across as elitist, but if you're using the 
two-ton wrecking ball of Microsoft Word to crack the tiny peanut of 
writing emails, you will have *zero* tech credibility in programming 
communities. Harsh but true. Sorry Marco, but mastery of tools is 
important to programmers, and a tool that generates as crufty HTML as 
Word does will unfortunately reflect badly on the person using the tool.)
