Well, that's a bummer, isn't it. You haven't found any good fonts  
which mitigate the problem? Like I said, Courier does seem to get  
around it, the only problem being that it's serif.

It's something the lawyers here at work make everyone stick in their  
signature, I'm afraid. Eventually I'm going to get around to  
switching all my mailing list memberships to a personal account, I  
know it's an annoying sig, and yes, it's not exactly logical when  
applied to a list address. My apologies =) If it makes you happy I'll  
try and remember to remove it to further replies to this list (I  
doubt they'll complain) ;)
