I actually wasn't discussing your e-mail, at all: I was making a
suggestion for the OSI Web site. One that strikes me as a no-brainer,

I've already stated the common view among the technical users who are
this mailing list's core audience: General e-mail is and should remain
a text medium, and HTML is obnoxious there, no matter how plastered onto
it. You obviously differ. Oh well.
> Also, I did not post IN HTML format; again, it was an attachment.
Your distinction is irrelevant to my point, and I would appreciate your
not "helping" further. Thanks.

I might consider analysing your seemingly pointless licence in some
entirely separate discussion (except that prior critiques seem to have
done a good job): My post concerned OSI's mailing list and the
submissions Web page's effect on it.
