Ugh.  Personally, I refuse to /ever/ use HTML mail, solving /that/ problem 
here, but I can understand how that might be difficult in certain work 
contexts, etc.

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. =:^\
