Many of the readers use software (such as Mozilla) that changes the font color and/or size when it encounters a "signature separator" in a messages. This is, of course, normal and expected for most emails. However, readers of the Telecom Digest, who receive multiple messages in a single email digest, find themselves squinting whenever a message with a signature separator ("--") appears in an email _above_ the one they're reading.
As a workaround, I've modified the mail scripts so that they'll turn all signature separators into the pattern hyphen-space-hyphen. I welcome suggestions and links to other solutions.
