I was thinking of having a HTML based newsletter. I could make it look really nice, and it would stand out from the traditional text newsletter.

However, there are still people using older e-mail clients. What amount of people would miss out on the HTML. I am not sending a text version because it would be too much work, but instead I will point to the archived version of the newsletter.

Also: Is this a wise decision in the first place?
