People can do that now, the triumph forum at http://www.team.net/forums 
allows pictures.  And
clickable links can be embedded in not only the forum, but in plain text 
email as well.  Look at
all the links at the bottom of this message.  [*]

I've had such capability set up in various guises for years.  But nobody 
uses it, so nobody uses
it.  Most folks want to keep doing it they way they've been doing it for 
the last 20 or so years
I've kept Team.Net on the air.


 *:  There's a link to the mailman page where folks can set their 
preferences for list delivery
       and such.  It has been I don't remember how long since I've 
started switching lists from
       majordomo to mailman, but there are still folks who try to use 
majordomo to manage
       their subscriptions.   You can lead a horse to water ....
