Some non-HTML parsing clients display all text/* portions inline, thus
including both text/plain and text/html. (Some bad posting clients only
send the content in the HTML part, but still include a dummy text/plain
part, so at the receiving end, only displaying the text/plain will not
display the content at all. I've had that happen to me trying to read
messages in kmail, occasionally, tho in most cases, I'd argue if it's in
HTML only, it's obviously content that's not worth reading, so haven't
been /too/ concerned with it.)
Duncan - List replies preferred. No HTML msgs.
