And many either can't, won't, or choose not to.  Point remains that
these are proprietary file formats, which raise both strategic and moral
reasons for avoiding their use.  The fact that tools exist to make a
less-preferred means of document interchange doesn't make them somehow

In many cases, remotely accessed mail accounts may not provide for
execution of graphical presentation tools such as you describe.

Know your audience, respect its wishes.
