Is there anyway to code up an html file (with the intent of using it as a
signature file for HTML capable mail readers) so that I could get a
random quote inserted each time?
This page: http://www.hypermall.com/cgi-bin/rand-quotes.pl
creates random quotes from a DB. Any HTML tag that would execute this
when the HTML was displayed?
Re: How to....
What 'each time'. Each time you compose an email or each time such an email
is displayed? If you mean the former: look up the manual of you mailer and
check, if it can use the output of an command (e.g. fortune) as signature.
Seems you are meaning the latter version of 'each time'. Only an iframe
could do this at all - not sure, if it is widely supported by html capable
clients. But anyway: don't do it.
If you want some randomness, do it when composing the mail (by hand or a
properly configure mailer).
