Not really. HTML makes mails a lot longer, not all mail reader programs 
support it and it doesn't add anything at all to a simple text message (except 

Not to mention that a lot of the spam/junk mail uses HTML with lots of links 
to external images etc. => long downloads and security risks. Result: some 
mail readers that can display HTML are configured by default not to, and then 
even a clean HTML message is a mess.

(for information: my reader can read HTML, I left the default not to use HTML 
formatting, and then HTML messages are a pain)
