	Moreover, since so many MUAs implement such different standards 
in displaying HTML, you have to decide which HTML engine you're going 
to support, and implement a complete version of that system in your 
mailing list management software so that you can be sure how the 
proposed changes will actually be displayed, and then kiss off all 
the rest.

	Do you really want to try to implement all versions of all HTML 
engines throughout the entire world, just to make this work?
