Agreed, but I was trying to explain why nmh has made its choices.  :-)

I quite often find both text/plain and text/html parts populated with
content, but differing content because someone hasn't updated both
templates in step.  Another common fault is text/plain containing chunks
of CSS and HTML as if some incomplete substitution aiming to strip HTML
has been run on the HTML part.

So I pick and choose what part(s) to read based on my trust/experience
of the source.  :-(

Cheers, Ralph.
