You failed to comment Laura's reference to my e-mail, where I cited from the
Bugzilla features description:

''' All of Bugzilla's User Interface and every email that Bugzilla 
sends are generated from "templates", files that contain mostly just 
HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Depending on how far you want to customize 
your installation, you don't have to know Perl to customize Bugzilla, 
you just have to edit the templates! '''

http://www.bugzilla.org/features/#extensions

So, given that a mayor problem is the visual orientation of the plain text
messages that Bugzilla sends out, do you think that it - by editing the
templates - it would be possible to make Bugzilla send out more accessible
plain text e-mail reports? 

And, btw, with regard to the upcoming support for HTML e-mail, is it perhaps
possible, even now, to send out HTML e-mail, if only one is willing to struggle
with the templates?
