Since Mulberry's mailing lists have been unwittingly used for
spreading a virus/trojan in an e-mail attachment twice in three
months, all e-mail attachments are now banned from the DSSSList.

DSSSL stylesheets, SGML files, and XML files are all text files, so
this should not affect the majority of posts to the list since you can
include the files' text in the body of your message.  If you need to
refer to a binary file such as an RTF file or a PDF file, you should
put the file on a Web site or FTP site and include the file's URL in
your DSSSList post.

If you do include an attachment in your DSSSList post -- even a HTML
attachment -- your message will bounce.
