Hi David and all,
Jim's message, sent with Pegasus, had mime type text/enriched,
and indeed had the control codes. However, it doesn't seem to
be valid rtf data. I'm running OE 6 under Win XP here, and
OE stripped off the control codes but did not interpret them.
I'm not surprised that your AOL 6 just treated it as plain text.
That's the conservative thing to do; you don't lose any data
and you won't have problems if malicious content is present.
I tried saving the file as a .rtf and opening in MS Word. It
displayed the control codes verbatim. I don't know enough
about rich text to say what's wrong.
I am also puzzled why the message had that mime type in the
first place. Jim's messages are normally plain text, and I
believe that he was replying to Derek, whose message was also
plain text, and no other messages were included.

Is it just me getting all these control codes in with the text?
