Since ages human read mails in ASCII or UTF-8 text. Why you think this
is not a "human readable format"?

HTML as e-mail (read carefully: as email, not as attachment) should be
forbidden because most MUA automatically fetch additional remote content
which violates privacy and can fetch bad content into your system.
You're warned.
