I can't /imagine/ myself using any of them!  I _like_ to see the raw
text, as it adds its own distinctive qualities to the Internet Mail
format.  Replacing either smilies or  formatting styles like the above
with font tricks removes the distinctiveness and is something else

Of course, that's just me, and as long as theirs an option to turn it off,
I'm fine with having the option to turn it on, for those that want it.  I
don't even care the default, as about the first thing I do with a new app
is see what sort of preferences it has that I can switch around, and
ensure that they are set to something I consider sane, secure, and
workable for my working style.
