Hi Jayb

They come from the e-mail client. Outlook express etc. can be configured to add > marks to text when forwarding or replying to e-mails. This is done to reduce confusion, particularly with messages that are forwarded many times.

Jokes fall into this category.

Smart joke forwarders copy and paste the joke into new e-mails. Even smarter ones post them on this board. BF
