Charts? Do you think I can do charts, too?

ASCII charts are possible using tables. But I don't know of any way to get real charts into a TMF post. The best approximation I've seen is to put the charts someplace else and include URLs to the charts on TMF. This is easy for those few people that run their own web server. It used to be easier for common folk when Yahoo still had free universal briefcases. Your ISP may have a free web page space that can be adapted to this purpose, although figuring out how to use it may be a daunting task in its own right.

If you are going to be posting lots of charts from Excel, you should pick up Radish's macro for this. It takes care of the tedious work of getting the correct spaces in place, etc.
