I have an ad for what sounds like a great application, which is a German
product. I don't know if it imports IGES or DXF. The literature is at home
and all I copied is the following address:

ISODraw (software name)

developed by:

ITEDO Software GbmH
Markt 21
D-53721 Siegburg
GERMANY

++49-0-41-68841 phone
++49-0-22-41-67955 fax

Their literature says they export to .MIF for files that are editable in
Frame. If you receive some information about this product, I would like to
know further about it. Thanks in advance :-)

I hope you find the answer...your messages are somewhat encoded...it may be
that you're using bold, italics or apostrophes that are not being
interpreted correctly. For this reason, you'll notice that some messages use
*asterisks* or _underlines_ for emphasis. Are you sending from a UNIX
system, writing under vi editor or something? When I was using such a
system, I couldn't use apostrophes in messages.

I don't know the answer, but maybe you could post more information about the
system and mail utilities you are using. We need more info.
