One annoyance with gmail: how do you view emails in fixed-width font?
I haven't been able to find a good solution for this (making it hard
to read mails with ascii tables like gstein's recent count-progress.py
Of course you can view in fixed-width font when reading them with a
regular mail client, but through the gmail web interface? How do you
guys cope with that?
There used to be a labs feature that put a "view in fixed-width font"
in the drop-down menu on mails, but it has recently disappeared ...
