Your message is unreadable on my different systems (Mac OS X, Windows, 
and Linux, web browsers Safari, Firefox, or Chrome, or news reader 
MT-NewsWatcher) for it is crippled by to many non-rendered characters 
such as =84 or =83=E2. (Of course, other readers might have a different 

You should try to copy and past Mathematica expressions in InputForm[],
for it is way more readable and far less prone to misinterpretation
(especially when your email/newsgroup client adds spurious equal sings
and/or other unwanted characters or character conversions).

To use the _InputForm_ when copying an expression from a Mathematica
notebook to an email client: select the cell(s) you want to include in
your email, then within the *Cell* menu select either *Convert To* or
*Display As* and choose *InputForm*. Finally, copy and paste as usual.
