Unmarked Software has updated TextSoap (http://www.unmarked.com/textsoap/) — a Mac OS X utility for cleaning out the extraneous forwarding marks, invisible characters, and formatting that you often find in e-mails and long documents — to version 6.4.1. The upgrade specifically works around a recent issue in Apple Mail that leaves the user with black on black text.

TextSoap is Universal Binary so runs natively on both PowerPC and Intel Macs. It requires Mac OS X 10.5 (“Leopard”) or higher.

Pricing for new customers starts at US$39.95. Upgrades for users of TextSoap 4 and 5 start at $19.95.
