My word, Philip, those were some big fonts! (Maybe mozilla-mail just
didn't like your html. Please don't forget to turn off HTML and MIME
encoded messages when sending to a mailing list--many people do not or

Hit ratios depend very much on your client population. In most ISPs you
will see anywhere from 25-40% request hit ratio with a 20-30% byte hit
ratio (both are usually somewhere in the middle). In businesses or
organizations with a similar browsing focus, that can be much higher. wrote:
