Well they expect a bit of markup like *bold* or _underlined_ or
/italics/ and links like but any decent MUA already
supports this for plain text mails.  Proper GUI based MUAs also support
inline images (which are part of MIME); I used such MUAs already in in
the mid 90ies.

I doubt that mail is the right thing to employ fancy CSS stuff, though.

gpg will nver touch the payload.  If MUAs want to sanitize HTML, I won't
have a problem with that.
