Where?  Before the </html> tag (if there is one)?  Before the </body> tag
(if there is one)?  Find the last paragraph tag and put it after the end
of the text that follows it?  What if there are divs and other CSS markup?
And what about the principle that you shouldn't mess with the body of a
message except for putting clearly marked headers and footers that are
obviously not part of the sender's text?  Once you start trying to parse
the html and put something in it, you're modifying the sender's text,
which is evil.

I got accused of being humorless last night.  I'm considering quoting
Lieutenant Commander Data: "Perhaps the joke was not funny."
