News posts containing JavaScript (Advice)

You can embed JavaScript into news postings composed using HTML.

When you compose and post a news message, you may use HTML as a way to improve the presentation. This means you can include some JavaScript to be executed in the client mail-reader application.

Not all news reading clients can support HTML let alone JavaScript. However, if your recipient does (and that is likely if it's a web browser), then you can do some creative things to link topics in threads and pre-format replies so that they associate correctly into the news topic tree. You simply construct your HTML document in the normal way.
