Hello, mcfly.

Fact- Mnay HTML Render engines are security risks.

Now step off your high horse and deal with just this fact.

Luddites? Oh cute. If we arent in your html circle jerk its cavemen labels
for us? Well sonny boy, why dont you try to champion a real change rather
than a buzz word hype riddled populartist one? If you want email to be
truly better or all, why not work up on the newer technologies and not
something a few years dusty? I can understand if your doing this simply to
pimp some left over VC, I mean why else flash your stanky nookie unless
there is payoff, but if you seriioulsy think a change is needed and you
think its HTML?? Holy Linear B Batman.

HTMl is caveman tech these days boyo. You got yourself knee deep in
pushing the new cave paintings when you could be working your gray matter
on something truly better.
