HTML is not e-mail, it's HTML.  When I get a mail which looks like a web
page, I usually just hit 'D', I don't have time to try to parse out all
the formatting codes to read it.  And yes, I'll happily be using 7bit or
8bit text in 2050 for email.  Binary attachments are fine when necessary,
making the core of a text message unreadable isn't.
