David and Tweeters,

David, thanks very much for your query.  NO, the guideline have not
changed.  Please DO NOT send graphic files directly to Tweeters.  For
people subscribed in the digest-nomime version (which I use to post on the
Web)  these files come in pages and pages of ascii characters.

Also please post to Tweeters in "plain text" not HTML which is the default 
for most mailers.  I will attempt to notify people who do not follow these 
guidelines privately.

TIA for your cooperation,

        Dan Victor, Seattle, WA <mailto:dcv at scn.org>
