I always create HTML emails.

I've used 3 different methods over the years.

1. Write the HTML using python string formatting
2. Use the Python Dominate package to build the HTML strings 
- https://github.com/Knio/dominate
3. Use web2py templating 

I think the web2py templating is the easiest and most natural way to do it 
for web2py coders.
