Unless you are sure that your recipient is able to handle HTML mail,
please do not send it that way. If you send it 'plain & HTML', everyone
gets two copies of the information, once plain, and once with the

HTLM-capable mail readers should be perfectly capable of displaying
plain text just fine. *That* is the backward-compatible option. Please
use it.
