Hi Jeff,

        I generally look at it from this perspective - Do we really
need HTML to convey something ? Are plain words not sufficient enough
to express ourselves ? Look at it as "Simple is better than complex"

       Someone already mentioned it - In a mailing list, the server
copies over the attachment to every recipient. Moreover, in these days
of githubs, wikis and pastebin, where we have syntax highlighting and
better viewing experience, why would we want to send attachments ?

Thank you
