Hehe -- actually, she generally only send mail to that address when
she's spotted something "cute" on AOL she wants me to see.
Unfortunately, AOL doesn't show here whether the graphic she's looking
at is a gif, jpg, or art file. If it turns out to be .art I just tell
her I'll look at it when I'm over there.
Of course, since she's running AOL 8, all the email she sends to my
regular addresses is HTML also. At least my MUA's handle it well.
