It's an extremely dumb idea. At the most, only 20% of the people using
email
can accept and read a message in HTML-format. The best way to look at it
is like this: There are somewhere around 120 people on this ML. When you
send a message in HTML-format, you are telling almost 100 of us that you
could care less as to whether or not we can actually read your message.
To say
that it is insulting would be an understatement.
HTML is for webpages.
Text is for E-Mail.
