It's not just with JAWS 6, though. I have 4.51, and when I have it set to 
read messages in plain text, it has that annoying focus problem, and I hate 
it. Take care.

It might be a good idea to set your mail program to send messages in plain
text instead of HTML.  That is a simple way to avoid text size and color
problems when you copy stuff in to messages.  HTML messages are really for
those E-mail cards and newsletters and stuff like that.  Since you don't
need your E-mail to be a specific color and certainly aren't going to be
sending pictures in your messages it makes sense to use plain text.  In
Outlook Express the setting for changing this is under tools, options, send
tab.  There are radeo buttons to choose between plain text and HTML.  JAWS
isn't very helpful because there is more than one set of these buttons but
it doesn't say which is for E-mail.  I assume the other set is for posting
to newsgroups, which I've never done with Outlook.  You can select the same
options for both and not worry about which is which. :-)
I would think the same options would be available in a very similar place
for the other E-mail programs that actually support HTML messages.

I just went back to only reading messages in plain text which avoids
listening to JAWS blabber how many links a message has, which is a real
waste of time.  Addresses that people write in messages still turn in to
links without having HTML on.  Only those click here links disappear, which
is just fine with me. :-)  If I actually need to read a message in HTML I
get an attachment that will display the message in HTML when opened in
Outlook.  That setting must be on the read tab.  I think JAWS 6 had a
strange bug, at least with my computer, that made it have focus problems
when read messages in plain text only was checked.  The problem seems to be
better now.

Oops.

I copied the title from K1000 and the default color is white. I tried to
play with the font but forgot about the color.  Jaws reads it and so I
thought it was ok.

The title of the book is What What Psychotherapists Should Know About
Disability
by Rhoda Olkin

It looks like there 2 pages missing, but they could be illustrations and so
I am hoping Christie will reply.

Sorry for the confusion and thanks for letting me know.

  Cindy,
  I think the text ended up being white as i can't see any text when i turn
my screen magnifier on, but when i read with my screen reader like i
usually do, i can read the test of her message just fine. *smile* Yes color
rarely matters with screen readers and most of the time those of us that
use them don't know what color the text is unless we make a point to check.
*smile* just thought I'd drop a bit of education in there for you.
