what do you see here? I'm sending this using a text-only email tool,
this one does not (and cannot be forced to) generate HTML email, so
on my screen it's a default mono-spaced font--courier or something 
like that.

My belief is that when God created email, it was His Intention for it
to be plain text! :)
