Well, one could argue that this would be the correct way of doing it,
where those who wanted an HTML version could get that, and those who
don't could get the plain text version. That's one of the points of
multipart/alternative, I thought.

Speaking of mailing list conventions, does anyone object if I use
“curly quotes” and other non-ASCII encoded in UTF-8—such as em-dashes?

Oh, and have you had the mungling-reply-to date debate yet? This
mailing list server sets the author's reply-to, which some people
(including me) consider somewhat broken.

The wonderful thing about standards is that there are so many to
choose from. :)
