I do not deal with HTML email. I also disable HTML when viewing emails. I  
only have to clean Word documents...

However, yes, that's true. Each and every semantic aspect of HTML is  
actually conveyed within documents, by colors, by fonts, by silly boxes  
(drawings), etc.  Yet, each time the font/color/look of the semantic  
concept is different. This is why you can't have a flawless document
