Most sites that offer to send regular emails to you will also let you choose whether you prefer HTML or plain text. If they didn't have a lot of people who don't want HTML text, I doubt they'd ask.

If you're just sending personal email to friends/family and nobody's complaining about your HTML email, I'd say there's no reason to change.

If you're sending commercial email to a lot of people whose preferences you don't know, I'd say plain text is the safest. It may not be as effective at conveying your message, but it won't annoy anyone. And come to think of it, a plain text message that gets read will convey your message better than an HTML one that gets deleted or can't be read. <g>
