    greater than & less than

    Eileen, apologies if this is an old issue. Please see <A target="_blank" HREF=http://www.wopr.com/cgi-bin/w3t/showthreaded.pl?Cat=&Board=xl&Number=38611&page=0& view=expanded&sb=5&vc=1>this post</A> and subsequent posts in the thread. It appears that greater than and less than symbols are munged up when they are e-mailed even when preserve tags are used. This makes VBA and Excel particularly

    Am I missing something, can anything be done?

    Re: greater than & less than

    I've just used the "Send this Post to a Friend" button to check this out. It comes through just fine if you use html email but the plain text version is, as you pointed out, a mess. I'll ponder the code...

    I don't know whether this helps or not, but the daily archive emails display this behaviour as well.

    All the email stuff uses the same code. Use the html option for now until I figure out how to tweak the plain text version.
