Is it possible to have a spoiler when composing a Thunderbird message?

E.g. the spoiler is hidden until clicked.

It would seem that might depend on your skill in composing in HTML. What would be your purpose in doing that?

The developers disabled javascript completely in message content. There is no option to enable javascript in message content.

Very simple. I am sending a friend a puzzle and the answer if he wants to reveal it.

Tell him you'll send the answer in the next message, and not to open it until ready. Could include SPOILER in the title of the 2nd message.

Why not just put the puzzle in the message and the answer in an attachment so it's not visible when the message is first opened?

Thanks for the replies.
It's no big deal.
I just wondered.

Also,

You can't use a <head> section with styles.

You can't use an external stylesheet.

You can use inline styles, but that doesn't help you with the following trick.

Maybe use the input element, then view the source to see the hidden value.

Code: Select all
<input type="password" value="cowabunga">
