Summary


Combinging HTML and plain text can be tricky.


We are sending an HTML button; and also included plain
text.


At the Yahoo e-mail options "signature", we choose
"HTML" thinking that the Feedburner HTML button will
appear; however, the button does not appear, yet the
remaining text is not formatted with the original
plain-text space.


It would be useful if the Yahoo e-mail signature
option included a note that


1. "If you place a button bar it will not work"; or
correct the code to permit a button bar;


2. "If you use HTML in your signature, then all plain
text must be formatted to include line breaks"; or
permit plain text-formatting to be automatically
converted to HTML.
