Hope I'm posting this in the correct place.
I checked my email today and found the ATP Newsletter. Thumbs up

Was puzzled by the odd type in Larry's great article. When I click on the link the type is normal. What is causing this to show this way in the email?

I just checked my newsletter, Lynn, and it isn't showing up that way for me.
Mine shows just like the rest of them, normal.

Maybe Dave will know.

Very odd.

I looked both places, the email and also clicked the link.
No problem.

Two questions:

1) If you view it here: http://garden.org/newsletter/view/2012-05-07/ does it exhibit the same problem?

2) What mail program are you using to read the newsletter when it arrives in your inbox?

My email is Thunderbird, where the print is goofy. On Firefox it is not goofy.

I had to go back and find it again. We've had a storm here and I had turned the computers off. This is what I saw when I opened it this morning:

This isn’t the color it was supposed to be
You buy a young potted plant at your local garden center that is not yet in bloom. The tag in the pot pictures a beautiful blue-colored flower. Much to your later dismay, the flowers aren’t blue at all, but a purplish lavender. What gives? (1,690 words - Read the full article)

Check the character encoding in your "View" pull-down menu. I use Unicode because I work in the Cyrillic and Roman alphabets, and I often see weird little glitches like that one. When I re-set the encoding to Western, they disappear.

I didn't think anything of it until I read this thread late this evening and remembered seeing the same thing this morning. I'm sure it was just a glitch!
