Ah - depends on your email client. There were (by mistake) tabs lurking
in various places in the documents, so in, for instance, Outlook
<fx:spit>, some of it looks very silly.

As to blockquotes and lists - I'm personally undecided whether::

    Some text.

        1. A list

should put the list in a blockquote or not, particularly since I often
like that form in the "raw text" over the (textually) equivalent::

    Some text.

    1. A list

I *suspect* that this may be a hint at a requirement for a qualifier on
the output software...
