I think it is entirely reasonable to ask CohousingUS to produce a text-only 
version. I restrict my personal email to text because it is faster, easier to 
archive, and to cut and paste the info into other documents for storage or 
reuse. When a blur HTML coding arrives, I hit delete.

I moderate a list of almost 2,000 members and all messages are restricted to 
text. It's nice to be able to load the images in private messages when I want 
them, but in email I'm interested in the information, not the flash and dash. 
For that I go to websites. A link works fine.
