Thank you very much for pointing OE users like myself who is also
blind, (but can take the time to bottom-post) to such a program. It's
only since being on this list that I really start to see the need for
it. Before, it just never occurd to me. I'm sure that sounds very
stupid and it is, but it was always just easy to reply, type, press
ctrl+enter and not really look at the result.

I suppose when this client gets even worse than it already is, I'll switch
to something like The Bat! or something. Though my feeling at present is,
if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
