Hi David,

FWIW, I downloaded your file direct from the mail (reading your mail
in gmail in my Firefoxbrowser)
Opening it with Jedit returned:

The file could not be loaded correctly (some data might be lost) with
the encoding "UTF-8".
(java.nio.charset.MalformedInputException: Input length = 1)
Try selecting a different encoding.
It can be selected with the menu File->Reload with Encoding.
If you want it to be done automatically, add the candidates into
"List of fallback encodings" in Encodings pane of Global Options.

Looking in
and opening the attached file
in firefox shows: ->attached png.
(It's a screenshot, don't knowing which result others will see,
following the links)
