Well, does your client software display messages in HTML? View the message source.

no, Steve meant that some Email Application, users are given option to disable/enable messages in plain text/HTML. If you send as HTML format, but the user set to plain text, he/she will see html codes instead of a nice html-formatted page.

I'd really suggest using a better e-mail library when you get into HTML mail and MIME content parts. My personal favorite so far is SwiftMailer (LGPL, excellent API). Here's a link to their 'Sending HTML' examples: http://www.swiftmailer.org/wikidocs/v3/tutorials/html
