Rich text or not rich text, that is the question

So, that is good news. Sending a rich text email from gMail does not
prompt those spurious carriage-returns to be added. So, what about
Apple's Mail program on the Mac? I have just set up my gMail account
on my Mac's Mail program, just so I can test this, and the email I am
writing is rich text, in the sense that if I go to the Format menu at
the top of the screen it gives me the option to "Make Plain Text" --
which implies that it must already be in rich text form. But so far I
have not included any italics or bold or any other formatting, so
maybe it will make an executive decision when I hit 'Send' and will
unilaterally send it in plain text form only...

Do I need to switch to Final Cut? There is a discussion on the Apple Support forums, but no answer yet...

Understanding Website Speed metrics in 5 minutes

Do you think your website might be slow? Do you think this could be affecting your eCommerce conversion rate? Maybe you’ve read somewhere that web pages should load faster than 3 seconds, and yet when you look in your Google Analytics it’s telling you that Averages Page Load Times are over 10 seconds… that means your website is too slow, right?
