use one of the text based browsers to convert it.. (lynx, links, elinks,

I was waiting for this "clever" advice. Did you noticed that majority of
e-mail clients - including Evolution - use proportional fonts by

Does Evo use proportional fonts by default?  I didn't think so -
certainly all versions of Evo I've used displays text only (i.e.
non-HTML) mail in a fixed font.  I've just checked Outlook as well - it
displays ASCII only email in fixed pitch.

This makes ASCII figures completely unreadable for most users, so using
them is much more annoying than a HTML mail.

So send ASCII as non-HTML (in the way email was originally supposed to
be) and everything will be fine.
