Just avoid using Javascript because most mail programs will disable it.

Other than that you ought to always send multipart-alternative MIME 
messages where the HTML version is indeed an alternative to a text 
version of your message. If you do not do that, some people will discard 
your messages confusing them with SPAM, unless what you are sendind is 
really solicited mail.
