[U-Boot-Users] debugging relocated code

Travis has the explanation:  the problem happened when an HTML message was
posted to the list, and I (naively!  foolishly!) replied to it.  Although
my mailer *is* configured for plain text (including this message), by my
replying to a message with HTML content, Outlook overrode my stated preference
and chose to format the response as HTML.  (HTML e-mail is contagiuous unless
we take prophylactic measures!)

Nonetheless I am to be faulted for not having re-set the flag back to plain
text.  Just a caveat to all the other Outlook users out there.  Wolfgang
has done great services to the embedded, Linux and U-Boot communities, and
if HTML e-mail raises his blood pressure to the point where he has a heart
attack, stroke, aneurysm or other fatal calamity, the world would be an
emptier place. :)

The problem is that the 1st message was HTML... outlook keeps the

If replying to an html message, and you want plain text you have to set
it per email.

General settings are overridden by the format of the original email.
