I actually agree with Martin who pointed this out quite subtly. many 
people will
be inconvenienced by an HTML-formatted message. If you did this in 
UseNet, your
message would probably get devoured or ignored, much like messages from Google
Groups (hit-and-run posters who do so because they "prefer it for many
reasons"; when happy with the answers, not even a thank-you).

I was going to follow-up to Amit's message, but the HTML caused 
that had me give up. So, the bottom line is that instead of personal
preferences, the preferences of the _community_ need to be honoured. Nobody
PGP's messages to this list, right?
