I suddenly realised that there is (probably) a way to attach a notebook
to a message here! The trick is to compress the expression which is the


For example:


Since Compress only uses printable ASCII characters, hopefully if you
paste the above string into a notebook and perform:


Of course, it is also possible to paste the raw output from NotebookGet,
but that will be considerably more voluminous. Also a compressed string
that becomes corrupted will be utterly destroyed, so it is probably
safer than using the raw BoxForm expression.

NB: The 9.0 bug that messes up cell merges, also affects NotebookGet, so
I would suggest you use 8.0.4 for this trick until 9.1 comes out.

This is really a test to discover if this survives the posting process!
