Interesting assertion.  While this may have been true in 1995, why you 
believe this to be true for the general case today, I have no idea.  Do 
you have specific data?

FWIW, I think most of what Joe says here is on target.  Rich text is, 
for most people, a better user experience, and the email world is 
gradually moving in that direction, regardless of Thunderbird does.
