	Oho! A great light dawns. I've been misunderstanding what you 
want; I took it to be something external. Pine had a setting with which 
to choose whether you wanted to see the html code; I set mine as firmly 
as I could to "NO!" and it has stayed that way. My guess is that the 
default has reversed.

which looked *to me* to be that choice. You may want to check them.

	OK, here I can only refer you to one of the other sources; all I 
know of html is one thing, that I detest it and all its works *in* 
*email*. Your mileage obviously varies from mine. I haven't seen -- or 
maybe just haven't recognized this question on the forums. You could try 
comp.mail.pine on usenet; or set your newsservers to include 
news.gmane.net, and try gmain.mail.alpine. info or gmane.mail.pine. 
general. (Both the latter, I believe, are actually lists at UW; you might 
prefer to get to them that way.)

	Having hit my limits on the specifics, I'll nevertheless guess 
that the choice is still there, and easy when you know where; there's 
almost surely also a way to reverse the general choice in particular 
instances, without having to go into setup. I'll bet you a sixpack to a 
beer on the first, and two beers to one on the second, FOB Blacksburg, VA.
