I use gnus, which handles HTML fine.  But that's not the point.  Not everyone
uses a mail reader that can handle HTML.  If you post in HTML, you
automatically limit who can respond to your message, which is a bad idea if
you're looking for help.  Plus, HTML just adds a bunch of useless junk to your
mail.  You shouldn't use HTML unless you really need it for some reason.
