Public bug reported:

Many if not most people currently use HTML-formatted email. When list
moderators have to approve email postings on the Administrative Requests
page, only a plaintext Message Excerpt is displayed, making informed
viewing of a list member's message sometimes next to impossible.

Looking through the mailman discussion list archives, I see that this
feature was asked for as far back as 2005 - 7 years ago, so this is not
a "new" suggestion. This would be an extremely helpful feature to add.
If there are security concerns, a toggle or config option could easily
be added so HTML viewing is not the default, and/or java/javascript
could be disabled in the preview window. Thank you for your
consideration here.
