We aim to provide our users with what they want.  Philosophically there is
no problem with adding HTML support (through an as-of-yet unknown
technical means ;-))--in the TDE style of doing things there would be a
configuration option to shut off the HTML reply feature.

Also, I would be careful about bashing Microsoft in terms of the features
offered.  While I do not like Micro$oft, and I absolutely hate what they
did to Windows over the past couple of releases, Windows 2000 and XP were
workhorse operating systems that still do things that Linux can't.
