Simplenews has basic html2txt functionality. As far as I know, these  
functions are the same as in the development version of Gerhard's  
mail.inc. All previous newsletters and security announcements were  
sent this way (created as an html node and converted to text by  
simplenews). Why were yesterday's announcements sent as html? Was  
there a problem?

I agree that we should move to using multipart/alternate instead of  
html only.
