Chapter 14. Posting to Newsgroups > Plain or Formatted Text

Plain or Formatted Text

Like email messages, newsgroup articles can be created as plain text or formatted (HTML) text. Entourage users can view either type of article. Older newsreaders, on the other hand, may limit the user to viewing only articles formatted as plain text.

By default, new messages are formatted according to the text specifications set in the Compose section of the Preferences dialog box (Figure 14.9). To set a different format for the current message, choose Format > HTML. (When the command is preceded by a check mark, formatted HTML will be used. When unchecked, a plain text message will be created.) You can also switch between HTML and plain text formatting by clicking the Use HTML icon above the message text box (see Figure 14.2).
