This bug will stand for all of the things that still need to be done for the 
compose window to match the menu specs.  I will attach the current list and we 
can decide which ones are important to do.

to pdt: this is a P1 because we want to remove items that aren't implemented 
(ie. user tries the menu item and see nothing happening) or for items that show 
a "." in front of the menu item. These are UE polish items.

We should address the static menu items and not fix the dynamic (enabling) items 
listed in the attachment to this bug report.

pdt: we had many small bugs filed(ie. one problem per bug) and mailtriage 
decided that there would have been too many nsbeta3 nominated bugs to look at 
(ie. for all of the menus, etc) so we decided to come up with one bug and a 
list.  It's too hard and a waste of time to break up the items to separate bugs 
(or to find them all) at this time.  Basically, we want to fix (at this time) 
all the items for the Compose windows that are static (ie. easy changes) so that 
we don't have menu items with periods in front of them, etc.  We won't do any 
risky/harder items such as enabling/disabling menu items per selection.

Scott, JF, can one of you clean up the list to remove the dynamic items and
anything that's done so we can see what's left?

Here is the list of things to do:

1) change menu File/Message to New Message
2) on Windows, change menu File/Clear(D) to Delete
3) on Windows,  change menu File/Quit(x) to Exit
4) remove menu item View/.Page Info (HTML & Plain Text)
5) either Disable menu item Options/Rewrap in HTML mode or totally remove it (both mode)
6) remove menu item Options/.Add Signature File
7) remove menu item Options/.Include Personal (vCard)
8) menu item File/New Message needs Ctrl+M
9) menu item File/New/Instant Message needs Ctrl+I
10) menu Options need a mnemonic (P)

Questions on the latest items:
- Item #2: Shouldn't it be for Edit|Clear(D) to change to state Edit|Delete, for
Windows and Linux only?

- Item #3: Change File|Quit(x) to File|Quit, only a Windows problem?

- Item #5: Rewrap in plain mode should be working in the next build. If true
then Rewrap should be available in plain mode, and disabled in HTML mode?

item #9: CTRL+I is already used in message compose for Italic! oops conflict.

item2#:  Mac->Clear, Win->Delete, Unix->Delete
item3#:  Mac->Quit, Win->Exit, Unix->depending on which flavor, could be Quit or Exit
item 5#: Rewrap has not be removed. It is enable only when you are in plain text and when the cursor is in the 
message body.
