The question wasn't whether she *should* send HTML. Most of my e-mail messages--both business and personal--are in plain text. It just takes up less bandwidth.

Again, that wasn't the question.

More to the point, I was talking strictly about "opt-in" marketing, where the recipient has asked to receive the messages.

Also, any opt-in e-mail marketing service worth a glance will include a setting that allows the recipient to specify a preference for HTML or plain-text messages.
