Not for just forms.  Go to http://www.stunicholls.myby.co.uk/layouts/index.html
and check the first link in the body.

Besides, writing HTML emails in Thunderbird does the same.

highly unlikely to be the source of a fix to the code.

you still believe we should implement it, please visit the URL of this bug
(given at the top of this mail) and add a comment to that effect, giving more
reproduction information if you have it.

If it is not a problem any longer, you need take no action. If this bug is not
changed in any way in the next two weeks, it will be automatically resolved.
