We've been getting a lot of people asking recently how you can submit to mathNEWS on-line, or sometimes blank looks when we mention that such a marvel is even possible. In light of this, we thought that we'd enlightened the great unwashed (that's you guys) as to how this whole thing works.
The mechanics are simple: type your article into an e-mail, give it the subject line "article" (without the double-quotes), and send it to email@example.com. (Or, of course, you can type it as a text file and mail us the file. Same thing.)
Some things that you shouldn't do: don't send us MIME attachments, especially not from pine, because they make our lives difficult. Don't send us MS Word documents, for similar reasons. And don't mail us files from Macintosh mail systems, because (once again) it complicates our lives needlessly.
If you're really keen, then you can provide us with some formatting. Our system is a lot like HTML, so you can use most of the same tags, as long as you type the tags in lowercase.
