I disagree. HTML is very complicated and there are numerous places for
email. Plugins certainly don't belong. Images don't either (they are all
remote... how do you insert an image into HTML?).
In fact there are so many inappropriate features in HTML that I wish Netscape
had standardized a subset which would understood enough to be safe rather
than just force the web into our mailboxes. Actually there would be no point
to stick with HTML (though a markup language would have been best). It
should have been very minimal. No exectable code, remote data, hidden links
or text, or display outside of the message area should have been allowed.
Even comments are suspect in my book. And besides security concerns I wish
blinking text, fonts over 18 points tall, and overly-contrasting colors
had been banned :)
