    To the contrary! Attachments are welcome. But if you have something you want 
    to post, just take a few minutes to make sure that its size is appropriate. 
    The problem with those examples I described in an earlier post (and they were 
    only examples) was that they were bandwidth hogs. With a few simple steps it 
    was easy to reduce the size of each by over 95% with no loss in meaningful 
    content at all. 
    And of course, I also went to some effort a few months ago to add a function 
    that lets you attach files "in effect" without wasting any email bandwidth by 
    using the "link" function through fer3.com/arc. That way, you can provide 
    arbitrarily large content to those NavList members who take an interest in 
    that particular content without burdening the email inboxes of those members 
    who may not be interested. It requires only one extra click to get to the 
    linked files (with most email readers).
    Also, there will soon be a new way to add certain special types of small 
    attachments to NavList messages automatically. For a little preview of this, 
    visit http://www.fer3.com/arc/sneakpeek.aspx. When you get there, click 
    "Submit" and then scroll down to see what you get. You can experiment by 
    entering your own equations and playing with the "Options" but please bear in 
    mind that this is under construction, and it doesn't always work correctly.
