So much Windows Mailer crap on this list...

I nuked them.  There is an option that I had overlooked in Text settings
there are two places in outlook express for Plain Text to be set and you
uncheck that box that says use > for reply, forward, etc.  I don't like it
either and it's a pain if you'd like to cut and paste stuff that you'd like
to provide in a presentable form.

Yep. You're in ISO 8895(1).

Now, please explain about the >< thingie. Are those being pronounced on
you? They do serve a function, of course, but I can also understand why
they're annoying with the current state of screen readers. Ideally, their
presence at the beginning of a line of text should trigger some sonic
change in the speech such as pitch, I would think.
