        From: Willard McCarty 
        Subject: test

Dear colleagues,

My thanks to those who, cleverer than I, have suggested means 
to probe the pointy-bracket problem, for example by writing as 
follows:

This is a yet another test. Please ignore!

If, above, you see two incomplete sentences, then we know that 
an anti-HTML code is lurking.

I've just discovered (1) that the above is correctly interpreted as 
HTML in the first stage of processing, producing italicised, a 
bolded and underlined words, and 
(2) that an expression of the form 
openingpointybracket-anything-closingpointybracket 
do not survive the first stage of processing. This does indeed 
suggest that only valid HTML markup is allowed. Hmm.

Apologies.

Yours,
WM
