I wanted to see HTML, I'd use a browser or an HTML editor.
Check out this survey, done in 2003:
87% of the non-technical survey group reported being able to read HTML
email, and 93% of the business group. HTML was reported to be preferred
over plain text by both groups.
Oh, well, since it's more than 50% we can afford to just shoot and bury
the remainder. Okay. No problem, then.
Excuse me, I never advocated one course of action over another. That was
my first post to this thread. I have no strong opinion either way, so
instead of adding to the bluster and speculation, I thought I'd
contribute some relevant information, in the hopes that the opinions
subsequently formed might be better educated. For the sake of civil
discussion, please keep your temper in check.
