Please post messages to the list in plain text.
Permitting some email programs to interpret HTML
entails excessive security risks. Consequently,
prudent users of such systems disable the display
of HTML email message content. One might argue
that the users of such systems should replace their
systems or software with more robust packages.
However, these users may have more pressing
concerns at the moment.
I agree that posting email messages encoded in HTML
is generally not a good practice, particularly when the
HTML adds no value to what could be carried in plain text.
