"Moz clients require at least one HTML element to send as HTML".

My request is to have an option that changes the Options -> Format
default from "Auto-Detect" to "HTML".  So that it will require no HTML
to send as HTML.

I suppose that someone can say "I disagree, I believe the default
option should be Auto-Detect".  and you have your opinion, and I have
mine (athough if things were reversed, I would yield so that everyone
can have things as they want).  But please, can we stop the
discussions that say

"SM doesn't convert HTML to plain text" (see Terry R's response above,
it does)
"You shouldn't want you HTML to go out as HTML unless it needs to be,
and here are some examples where it doesn't matter"  (I do want it,
and I have examples where it does matter).

1) I've established what Options -> Format -> Auto-detect does.
2)  I've established that there is no way to change the behavior
without workarounds of various painfulness (hand-select Options ->
Format -> HTML every time, add a signature with sufficient HTML in it,
3) I've politely requested a way to change the default from Auto-
Detect to "Rich (HTML) Text".

No offense to all, and I understand that some may not agree that my
request should be granted, but I think I've proved that it's a valid

So if you want to continue discussion on how to implement, or (I
suppose, sigh) whether to implement, that's great, but can I please
stop proving that the issue exists?

Thanks all!
