Of course I get the joke, but the funny thing is that it was indeed a
non-plain text message! What our wise mother Heather was talking about was
HTML-encoded messages, which mess up the digests and the list-archives. It
is kinda tricky because most e-mail clients make HTML-encoded messages by
default. It is not only the use of fonts, sizes and styles that make a
message HTML-encoded, but even the ABILITY to use them, indicates that the
message is HTML-encoded.
