...and do note that I sent the email (as always) in straight text
mode, the listserv software kept the text formatting, and that the
text appears properly in the gmane archives:

So the "problem" is on your end. I see you're using Thunderbird to
handle the list emails. You might want to configure it to view text
instead of html in order to avoid this kind of problem in the future.
