> Just say no to inline PGP!
Some reasons I use inline:
* My email has a much better chance of reaching people whose
systems bounce (or discard!) attachments.
* It is easy to transfer my message to another format (such as a
webpage) while keeping the signature. It is also easy for people
to forward the signed message.
* It never messes up in mailing list archives (although some
mailing list programs now handle sig attachments properly).
* It's easy to send my email from anywhere (e.g. a webmail account)
by simply cutting and pasting text.
* I don't keep my key on a internet-connected machine, so cutting
and pasting a clearsigned message also makes life much easier.
