I know this is a pretty minor issue, but the GotDotNet community
e-mail that has this information is not properly formatted. The e-mail
is formatted as both HTML and Text, and the HTML version does not have
line breaks (<br />) where there are newlines (\n), so your
text-bulleted list runs together. (The text version still works).
