(repost) Event Announcement from South Asia Partnership

I've reposted the SAP announcement in plain text below.

Please do not send attachments (e.g. word processor documents) to this
mailing list.  Why?

1. Many people cannot process them due to software incompatibility.

2. Wordprocessor documents and spreadsheets, especially from Microsoft,
can be carriers for computer macro viruses.

3. MS-Word and Wordperfect are proprietary software that produce 
documents in a proprietary format.  When you use such programs and 
files to communicate, you force others to acquire the wordprocessor or
similar software that is licensed to read those documents.

4. People are more likely to read and respond to something that they 
don't have to take extra steps to read.
