It is always been the convention on mailing lists and newsgroups to post 
to it in plain text only. There are two reasons:
1. Some people will not be using html or rtf clients.
2. Someone pays for the disc storage space to archive them, so the fewer 
bytes the better. It is for this reason that snipping unnecessary parts 
of a previous posting when replying is considered good practice (OK, I'm 
not good at it). Short (or no) sig files too.
