I'm looking at the Settings window and have selected Composer.  There 
are the following tabs across the top: General, Standard Templates, 
Custom Templates, Subject, Charset, Headers, Attachments.  I've checked 
through them all.  I *really* hope I'm missing something obvious, but I 
don't see a single place that specifies using HTML or text.

Can we assume that somehow I have turned into a complete idiot or have 
gone selectively blind and can someone specify exactly where this 
setting is to specify HTML or text in KMail 1.10.3 in KDE 4.1.3?
