As HTML is not executable code, "interpreted" is a misleading word to 
use. But taking it in the loosest possible way, no, of course not. I 
have no desire to see raw HTML content, I want my browser to render it, 
I never said differently.

I'm sorry that neither I, nor the existence of Javascript malware, have 
not been able to convince you that there is a large difference between 
rendering a HTML document and executing code.

I am happy for you to continue allowing Javascript to run in your 
browser, and you should be happy to allow me to disable it by default 
even if you think I'm being silly. All I asked for is that Mailman's web 
UI should degrade gracefully when Javascript is turned off. Is that so
