Don't mistake Ingo's answer to mean there is resistance to composing HTML
messages, I think rather it has been a matter of priorities thusfar. As a
matter of fact, I'm pretty sure I read in one of the related mailing lists
some of the other developers talking about how they wanted to implement it;
it might have been the 'make_it_cool' developers, I'm not sure.
Anyway, Kmail has been developing very quickly and there are a *lot* of
different things the developers are working on, and I think implementing the
display of HTML mails was somewhat easier than the composing of them
would/will be. Besides, it was neccessary in order to make some mails even
readable, whereas -- as you said -- you can be more expressive when you write
an HTML mail, but you can still be expressive without. Just a matter of
priorities, like I said. I don't think any of the developers are actively
against it, though any of them can feel free to correct me if I'm wrong :-)
