More to the point, why punish the entire list by bickering about a minority inability to cope with the fact that some people are different?
It's because some MUAs are dain bramaged.
The world has more than eight bits.
Which is just one of the reasons that the MIME type "multipart/alternative" exists. Sane MUAs that wish to send HTML also send a text/plain alternative segment in the same MIME stream. The unfortunate part is that this classifies Thunderbird as not "sane", because its default configuration for dual-format output is "ask me" based on whether all addresses are in the address book with the HTML option enabled, rather than simply always sending multipart by default. -- -- Todd Vierling <email@example.com> <firstname.lastname@example.org> <email@example.com>
