Agree with you entirely, however one can and should reasonably expect
the format to conform with agreed international specifications. Outlook
in non plain text mode does not. Mail clients that do conform with those
standards are unable to read it. It is not the mail reader's failure,
nor the mail sender, it is the purveyor of nonconforming software. Who
for too long has abused its monopolistic position, stuck 2 fingers up
and said this is how we do it, lump it or leave it.
Wisdom and experience come with age, they say, but I wish I could
remember the darn question
