I understend your concerns, but looking through my inbox I can see that 
everyone, except a small number of fellow programmers, is using html format 
for sending messges. It seems to be the standard here and plaintext 
messages are pretty much out of the question for business communication. 
I'm not kidding - sometimes I even get asked why I keep replying in 
plaintext! :)

But otherwise it really depends on the recipient. Average computer users - 
and most journalists, even those writing for computer magazines, fall into 
this category - tend to prefer html emails; which is why I'll be using this 
format. It's understandable, though, that your audience might have 
different preferences.
