I have pretty strong opinions on that one - I see the HTML icon as a
warning. I don't want HTML mail and if someone starts writing email in HTML,
I usually trash it unread and replay to them to re-send this and future
emails using text-only format.
At some time in the future I may even use some sort of server-side
processing to reject HTML email outright and send reply notices about that.
I also think more people should be doing that...
