with many windows email clients it is not so easy to see the message in a
dos window: you'd have to save it as a file, open a dos session, navigate
to that file... usually i'm quicker figuring out what a "traditional" ascii
schematic says, even when displayed in a proportional font... :)
somehow, ascii charting with non-ascii characters seems to defeat the
purpose of being truely universal (or at least planetarial :)

O.K. for a quick e-mail sketch, I'll agree. I was hoping to come up with something good enough to include with projects. Apparently I've failed. I'll just go back to using PaintBrush. I can usually knock out a fairly good looking schematic pretty fast in that because I'm use to it, (SD50 is even faster though).
