The official "List Administration Manual" at 
<http://www.list.org/mailman-admin/index.html> is incomplete.  It 
effectively stops at section "2.9 The Archiving Options Category" 
(URL: <http://www.list.org/mailman-admin/node26.html>), and what 
you're looking for would be covered in section "2.12 The Content 
Filtering Category".

The updated version of this manual is being worked on, and what's 
been done so far can be found at

Go to the web admin page for your list.  Go to the "Content 
Filtering" section.  Scroll down to the bottom, and where it says 
"... convert text/html parts to plain text?", you make sure that the 
radio button is set to "Yes".  If not, set it to "Yes", then click 
the "Submit Your Changes" button at the bottom of the page.

Hopefully, this will solve your problem.
