This says gmail, and I understand it's a bit of trouble there, but can you please turn off HTML when sending to lists, unless it's a list that specifically encourages it? Within the FLOSS (Free Libre and Open Source Software) community, HTML in mail or news is considered by many to be the mark of malware or spam, and thus is discouraged and often killfiled. Where it isn't killfiled, many are by choice running clients that show the raw HTML (in addition to the plain text if the sending client included it, thankfully gmail does). By posting in HTML, you therefore limit your audience, and limit those willing to take the time to answer what is then classed as an "obvious HTML using luser willing to risk security for their HTML", if they don't simply killfile it. -- Duncan - List replies preferred.
