Gmail: Just Plain Text no more

Frankly, I'm not a big fan of HTML email messages, as my inbox is already full of irritating multi-colored text, big ugly font sizes, and corny cartoon smilies. But being able to put hyperlinks in your message can be useful at times. So I'm glad Gmail has finally added a toolbar for making HTML-formatted emails.

Come to think of it, this new feature means the Mail-to-Blogger feature of Blogger is now much more practical for Gmail users. There's still no way to put images in your email, though, so Mail-to-Blogger is still useless for photo-blogging. I suggest they make Blogger capable of recognizing image attachments...that would be so cool! :-)
