I'm by no means a fan of HTML email either, but /if/ we were to
support it (a big if I might add), then the model I'd work from would
be the daw-mac mailing list, which is IIRC run on yahoogroups. It's
hyperlinked summary and clicking on each link does some JS magic to
pop you to the message below.
Don't take the above as an endorsement of HTML digests, and there
will always be standards-compliant plain text digests in Mailman.
I'm just saying that there's at least one not so horrible (IMO)
example out in the wild.
BTW, I think another possible digest style option would be one where
the messages are not actually included in the digest, but the
summaries (and perhaps some content excerpt) would be linked to the
messages in the archives. We've talked about that for a long time too.
