While we're waiting for the Web Crossing programmers to figure out how to let us eliminate HTML formatting from messages in TidBITS Talk, note that some of the messages in our existing archive are a bit more difficult to read because of the HTML tags. You may wish instead to read these threads in Web Crossing itself, where the HTML formatting is handled behind the scenes. You can see all the TidBITS Talk threads at the link below; the second link below each thread description takes you directly to that thread in Web Crossing. Although we've put absolutely no effort into making the Web Crossing archive look the way we want yet (so no snarky comments, please), you'll find that it's a lot faster than our old archive.
