I still can't understand why people ALWAYS scold HTML enriched e-mail. I think
it's not that bad as much it is thought to be. Recently a friend of mine needed
some help in JavaScript. I mailed him JS code and colored it's different parts
with red, blue, maroon etc. to explain their functions. This colorizing was not
possible with HTML mail.
If HTML e-mail is bad then it can be good in many ways.
