Ugh. Personally, I refuse to /ever/ use HTML mail, solving /that/ problem

If I suddenly see typical word-processing icons (font and font-size
choices, bold/italic, justification, etc), it's all the clue I need! A
plain text editor, which is what a mail client should be from this
perspective, doesn't need them, so if they're there, either I opened a
world processor instead of kmail by mistake, or kmail of its own accord
decided the content I write wasn't worth reading and needed spicing up a
bit with some HTML. =:^\
