Gmail Adds Rich Text Signatures

Gmail added one of the most frequently requested features: rich text signatures. If you go to the settings page, you can edit now your signature and change text formatting, add links and images. You can only create a rich text signature if you have enable rich formatting in the "compose mail" page.

"Some of you have tried your own solutions, including the Greasemonkey scripts, browser plugins, and even using the canned responses from Gmail Labs. Others have simply lived with the frustration of not being able to change the colors or font size of your signature, or insert images and links. Either way, you'll be happy to know that today we're launching the ability to write with your own rich text signatures right in Gmail," says Mark Knichel, from Google.
Another useful new feature lets you to create distinct signatures for the email accounts you're using when sending messages. If you send mail from a different addresses, it makes sense to have a distinct signature for each account.
Unfortunately, the new features only work in the desktop standard with Web interface. "Currently, only the latest desktop version of the Gmail supports rich text signatures and multiple signatures. The older version and the HTML version of Gmail, along with the mobile versions, use a plain text version of your primary account's signature."
