Poking into this business of bad HTML BODY tags slightly further:

  -- The body tag originates in htmlformat.py

  -- The Debian package patches that file at the point it generates
  the BODY tag.  Do `apt-get source mailman` on a Debian system to
  see, or grab the diff off your local Debian mirror. (It comments
  out the "output.append line").

  -- SVLUG.org is running Debian.  I don't know if they're running
  from a Debian Mailman package or not.  They appear on the surface
  to be running 2.0.5, much as I am.  At Kanga.Nu I'm running the
  default Debian package, and as you can see, generate correct HTML.

  -- The Debian package maintainer is active on the Mailman lists
  (possibly -developer only) and may be able to comment further.
