Paste Without Formatting Implemented in Mozilla Thunderbird

Wednesday October 29th, 2003

Peter Lairo writes: "'Paste Without Formatting' is now implemented in Mozilla Thunderbird's e-mail composer. It is now possible to copy formatted text (e.g. from a web page) and then paste it into an e-mail, and the text will be inserted using the formatting (or lack thereof) of the e-mail (target) and not that of the source. This feature is (almost) as cool for Thunderbird, as tabbed browsing is for Firebird. 'Paste Without Formatting' can be accessed via the context menu or the 'Edit' menu. The original bug was bug 64647."

Yes. I am sure the image was included in the message itself. After sending the message, I looked at the message source of copy of the message in my "sent" folder (up on my IMAP4 service). The images are really there as attachments.

Here's the image reference from the HTML in the sent message: <img src="cid:<part2.00010406.00030808@acm.org>" width="250" height="164" alt="">

and here's a chuck of the message with one whole image and the begining of the next:
