You definately got our attention though. :)

People really should give HTML email a miss though, it rots.
Although if Open Office supports a fully open document type, would it be 
reasonable for businesses to use it as an email format? The format is 
open and readily printable. To me this would be a selling point over any 
of the other offerings out there.

Any thoughts?
