    Not all of us have such an option on our email program. Mine doesn't.
    
    But all, I think, who send html, have the option to choose plain-text,
    html, or both. It's the responsibility of the sender to send in an
    appropriate form, not the receiver to filter it out.
    
    I quote from Dan Hogan's welcome message to the list, which all should have
    received-
    
    >PLEASE use text format in your messages not HTML.
    
    All those who post messages should take heed of Dan's request, especially
    when they are sending such long messages as Joel's was. Was there anything
    in that message, I wonder, that really called for any of the prettifying
    enhancements offered by html?
    
    As for long postings as an issue in themselves, I have no objection when
    their content is interesting and relevant, as Joel's could well have been
    to many. But senders should take whatever steps they can to minimise their
    length.
    
    George.
