Dose VC++ 5.0 inline assembler support CPUID instruction?

1) Please don't use HTML, there are plenty of
different newsgroup readers that view the
newsgroups, and as such not everyone of them
is using Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator
to read their newsgroups. In fact, I'm using NetTamer
for DOS. Just as it wouldn't look pretty on your screen
to use line drawing characters like ?? It's not pretty
to see a bunch of <BODY> etc. tags ?

If I'm not mistaken, Visual C++ is a 32-bit compiler (with
optimizations for some 64-bit CPU's) and as such, it didn't support
the CPUID. CPUID is an instruction that most 486 chips didn't
include, and only in the Pentium based chips could you be guaranteed
to support it. On the 32-bit chips, I think the newest 486slc's and
other low-powered chips supported it, but the SX's and DX's didn't...

Because of all the  's in this message, your message was 70 lines
long on my reader. to further make things worse, it doesn't appear
as if you used any HTML features (eg. you didn't change color, bold,
etc. so we have 70 lines vs 10 lines or so with no benifiets. This
is why so many people are against HTML readers like Microsoft Outlook
in the newsgroups. Some BBS's have to pay long-distance fees to
download newsgroups, just to provide a service to their local callers
who can't afford internet service (or who is so far away from any
major city that they have no local service). Some people do as I
once did and convert newsgroups to .QWK packet... In short every time
someone post using html, they cause millions of people everywhere to
spend more time downloading (which takes time away from their busy
schedule, prevents them from answering replies as quickly, etc.) and
in some case cost them more money. In fact, some of the smartest
people prefer living "In the boon-docks", and as such have to call
long-distance for their newsgroups and mail... If they're paying
long-distance fees to get their newsgroups, you may not hear a reply
back from them in a while, and they Just might have the answer to a
programming problem that's been bugging you for a long time....
Perhaps one that could end up costing you money on a job later on...
The really bad part about Open Look is that most users don't know
Microsoft's sending HTML behind their back... I've tried it, and
that's only one reason I don't like Internet Explorer 4.0 The other
has to do with the fact that it keeps crashing my system that I use
for my Business, and I can't afford to be installing Windows'95 on a
