I am asking this question to gain a greater understanding more than
I use the HTML Mail pluggin in my 1.4.21 installation. And like many
others, I don't use IE, in fact I use Chrome.
But as per the documentation, HTML Mail only works with IE 5.5+ or newer
(20030624) Gecko-compatible browsers
My question is:
Why does this limitation exist?
I ask this because I am a big fan of Drupal. This product also uses HTML
Area and/or FCKeditor but doesn't have the limitation.
I am not a programmer, and as such I don't have a working knowledge of
fundamentals of programming. But I would like to see if this limitation
can be removed so that I am not forced to use IE to reply/forward HTML
composed emails in order to retain the composition of the message.
I look forward to any comments.

Check fckeditor version bundled with html_mail plugin.
Limit is in editor version, used html editor and browser version checks
coded in plugin.
Upgrade to newer fckeditor 2 version is simple. You just have to reapply
spellcheck backend changes, maybe fix minor version API differences and
update plugin functions to detect Opera, Konqueror and Webkit. Detection
should remember that 'Opera' and 'Webkit' can be found on mobile browsers
were removed from fckeditor.
