No. YOU are confusing HTML email (broken, dangerous, bad) with formatted
text (maybe good, maybe bad). 

I've hated HTML emails well before I received my first spam. I still hate
it, long after I've got my spam problem under control.

If and when somebody comes up with a non-broken, non-dangerous way of
allowing formatting in emails, I'll consider it. But HTML is not and never
will be that format.
