The Mailtext MUI custom class
package is especially designed to display electronic messages. Its main
Handling of font attributes: *bold*, /italics/, _underline_ and
#coloured#. The text between the attribute characters '*', '/', '_' and
'#' will be printed with the repective style. To accomplish this,
Mailtext has a powerful analysis engine which is aware of many special
cases so best results can be obtained. Also, processing can be switched
off for certain textpassages, i.e. uuencoded binaries, signatures,
Highlighting of quoted textpasses: Mailtext is able to display up to
five levels of quoted text in different colours. Quotes are recognized
by specifying the quote characters that may be used to introduce a
quoted textpassage. The most common quote character is '>'.
Highlighting and handling of URLs: Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) may
be highlighted. Also, an AmigaDOS command can be triggered whenever an
URL is double clicked with the clicked URL as an argument. By using an
ARexx script you could forward http:// URLs to your webbrowser, mailto:
URLs back to your Mailer and ftp:// URLs to your FTP client. Mailtext
supports all URL types specified in RFC 1738 "Uniform Resource
Locators", Section 3.
As of NList, Mailtext also supports
mark & copy to clipboard: use the mouse to mark text and have it
copied to the clipboard.
Mailtext v3.1 needs MUI v3.6 (muimaster.library v17) and the NList
package to work.
