	That's probably MIME format.

	Go to the "Digest Options" page of the web admin interface for 
your mailing list.  Scroll down to the third item on the list, which 
should be labeled "When receiving digests, which format is default?" 
There should be two radio-buttons next to it, labeled "Plain" and 
"MIME".  Assuming that "MIME" is what is currently selected, choose 
"Plain" instead.

	You could probably change the templates used to generate the digests.
