HTML email in Hotmail

It seems that when I acces my Hotmail account within Mozilla or Konqueror, my signature at the bottom of my emails are just HTML code, not an actual "signature"....Is there a way to change that so it appears as a regular signature? Thanks.

"Is there a way to change that so it appears as a regular signature?"

I have two possible solutions to suggest.

1. You could try deleting the automatic signature added by your email client and typing it in by hand.

2. You could ask Microsoft to conform to the HTML standards.

I am sure that M$ would rapidly correct any product that worked properly outside of Internet Explorer. In fact I amazed that Hotmail works at all with Mozilla or Konqueror.

You can't send attachments using Hotmail with Mozilla or Konquerer on Linux (the option to send them is simply missing), yet attachments work with Mozilla on Windows.

I think I even tried to tell Konqueror to lie about its identity; it didn't seem to help.

I'll bet its because M$ has some dorky function that's made to only work with IE. Oh well, what do you expect?
