mail reads html ok, but doesnt send it.

there's a hint on how to send html here (http://www.macosxhints.com/article.php?story=20050228113934687). but, its kindof a PITA.

the simple way would be to manually make a bullet with opt-8.

...however, mail clients with a different idea of 8-bit ascii won't see bullets.

At least when mailing elderly unix.wizards, refrain from using html in mail and keep it 7bit-ascii.
