So do you go into this with the set expectations that it will "break" 
for some/many email programs (in spite of inline styles) and the folks 
who use them are possibly used to this, thus you offer the accomodation 
of the URL to read it? 

Do programs like MailChimp use inline styles or what?  I'm not hearing 
nods (this is the weekend I know) that adding a short in-document style 
section in the head is a satisfactory option.
