I have to second this. It's the first step down the slippery slope to
"I tire of pandering to the `I can't take Microsfost Word docs even
tho it makes life so much easier' crowd." Every mail reader can read
plain text messages. Not every mail reader can read html messages,
just as not every mail reader can handle MS Word. It's a bit of
arrogance, intentional or not, to say, "My mail is so important you
should go out and get special software to read it."
