email etiquette

Very true. For me, an ideal markup system for e-mail would be:
  • The recipient specifies the font in their mail preferences, the sender has no way of overriding it (die, Comic Sans, die die!);
  • The colour cannot be changed (I'm not really into pink);
  • Only basic markup is used: bold, italic, underline, quote, lists.

Sounds good to me. Avoiding all the extras helps keep it readable, and speeds up the network. For the rare occasion you need the extra formatting, just email a link to a PDF or HTML file.
