well the original message showed that as one (of two) possibilities and

well it depends. It often seems easier to write plain text (or only
lightly marked up text) but the lessons of structured documents over the
decades (latex, sgml, xml, ...) is that, on balance, markup is a good
thing and the more of it you get and the earlier it's added, then the
happier you will be in the long run. You see, I don't just hang around
here for the fun of it, I actually believe in all this structured markup
