Robin's machine states that Python is plain text, so the text gets quoted
(my machine, in contrast, seems to think that Python code is binary data).
To automagically un-quote Robin's posts, something like the following works
quite nicely (after saving the text to a file)...

That's a standard mime encoding for attachemnts, but the digest messages
simply append all the text together. Just copy/pasting code into a message
has problems too as some mailers will eat leading tabs or will wrap long
lines, so attachments work best for me.
There is another digest option you can try that will bundle all messages as
separate mime attachments. You can go to
http://starship.python.net/mailman/listinfo/wxpython-users and change your
digest settings and see if it helps. If not and getting properly formatted
code is importanto to you I would suggest turning off digest delivery and
simply filtering incoming mail from the list into a separate folder.
