    Re: Attachments on Nav-L list

    I certainly agree with Geoffrey regarding attachments requiring
    considerable download time, i.e., scans, photographs, color,etc. It
    would, however, be both convenient and instructive to allow solutional
    formats to be attached if in simple text, whether for calculator or
    logarithmic solution. I am for example, referring to a time sight,
    intercept, lunar distance clearing, etc., calculation formats as have
    been traditionally employed in navigation instruction. As you all know,
    any effort to transmit such formats in a conventional emal message simply
    results in a chaotic destruction of organizational margins and spacing.
    Personnally, I feel that such attachments would increase my ability to
    contribute. Just a thought ...
