How do we make our notices be "plain-text"? (That is, how do we include the text in the notice itself, rather than in an attachment?)
A plain version of the template has to exist (that is, plain-xxxx.xsl) in the ./xxx01/form_eng directory and it will then be used automatically.
To create a plain version, copy the existing version and change the include for funcs.xsl to include plain-funcs.xsl.
For instance, if you want to send a plain version of the lost-material-summary form, you would copy lost-material-summary.xsl to plain-lost-material-summary.xsl and change:

If you want to send plain-text notices to just certain patrons, you can set the Mail Attachment field in the Global patron record to "P".
