I use a web browser to browse the web, but I use mutt to read and
send email.

The two things are completely separate for me.  And, I suspect, for
many other Debian users.

If someone sends email which contains only HTML and not a textual part,
mutt shows me the raw HTML.  And then I delete the email, because if
they can't be bothered to send their words in an ordinary plain text
message, then I can't be bothered to go out of my way to convert it for
them.  Plus, it'll either be spam, or a stupid question that I have
no interest in reading in the first place, because what kind of
intelligent question could you possibly get from someone who sends
pure-HTML email?  None.
