Thanks for your reply John. Well, it turns out that the solution to my problem was to go to Internet Explorer's Internet Options and change the email default from Outlook Express to Hotmail. Now, when I have a sebsite open and I want to send its link to someone, clicking on File>Send opens the Hotmail compose email page rather than the Outlook Express compose email page. Somehow, when the Outlook Express compose email page opened, the scripting options were grayed out and not available. And although the text I typed appeared in black when I typed it, when the recipient opened my email that script text that I typed was in light gray.
I first thought Hotmail was the problem and that I could solve it by using Gmail instead of Hotmail, so I opened a Gamil account, but, no, that didn't help any.
I do like Gmail but I guess I'll stick with Hotmail since it is set up to be the email program I will get when I want to send someone a link to a website I have open. I wish there were a way to make Gmail my default email program instead of Hotmail, but Internet Explorer Internet Options doesn't allow for that; the options it provides are Outlook Express and Hotmail.
Anyhow, now I won't have the people I send these emails complaining that they can't read the text I type.
