Personal opinion, but very widely held:  HTML in e-mail is obnoxious.
It should be confined to the Web.

Observation:  The OSL submissions guidelines, item #1, ask submitters to
put the licence on the _Web_ in HTML format.  The separate item about
posting to this mailing list does _not_ say post in HTML format.

I would suggest the latter directive be clarified to say "ASCII, please".
