Not without making source-code level changes to the Mailman code, no.  You 
can't even include any HTML in the footer.

You can include text-mode links, although they may get HTML-escaped if you 
enter them through the Web UI instead of putting them directly into the 
template text file on the server.

Take a look in the archives at somewhat older messages to this mailing list. 
  They were HTML-escaped because I had entered the URLs via the Web UI.  Now 
that we've moved the FAQ over to the Wiki and we no longer have URLS with 
question marks in them, you don't see that HTML escaping anymore.

The problem of doing surgery on HTML formatted e-mail messages as they pass 
through the system is much more complex than anyone ever gives credit for. 
See the archives of the mailman-users and mailman-developers mailing lists 
for more information.
