Email document conventions

I submit articles via email for subsequent publication using Quark,
FrameMaker, etc. I submit these in plain text for the follwoing reasons:

* I sometimes don't know the target application.

* I sometimes don't have the target application.

* Not everyone I send to can receive binary attachments reliably.

Nonetheless, I'd like to be able to indicate bold, italics, hanging indents,
bullets, em- and en-dashes, and other typographic niceties.

Does anyone know of a convention for this, preferably with filters for the
major publishing packages? Is HTML a good solution? ...RM
