This problem has socio, political and economic [M$pook's past
and future action supports their monopoly] determinants.
?! Now also gmail-abusive-monopolists is screwing us:
] You are currently viewing Gmail in basic HTML. Switch to
] standard view | Set basic HTML as default view..."
When you are located in a <3rd going 4th world> society:
socio/political trump technical considerations.

No ! Must be free to flee on short notice = Use laptop/s.
Available inet facilities are designed for CocoCola mentalitity:
fortunately my USBstik-based Debian7 [which has nice font size]
drives the G3-USBdongle. But NOW I need Wifi access; which is
available to my USBstik-based TinyCore. Which is having Opera-
gmail problems, since gmail "updated". Ie. builtin obsolescence!
Remember how easy/natural email was under N.O./S3 in the 90s?
It's time for US anti-monopolist to act, like they did against
AT&T. From 1969 I worked at StandardTelephones&Cables, which was
a subsiduary of AT&T [via STC UK]. So I know the detailed history.
- Let's paste this from wily to TinyCore Opera & see if gmail
can send it ?
