If you can't be bothered to insert suitable mark-up, 
namely inserting a blank line between paragraphs,
in plain text, what would lead us to believe that 
you'd use a more complicated mark-up (HTML) sensibly?

What makes you think that the rest of the world wants
to see people who can't use, or deliberately abuse, 
the power that they already have granted even more 
power?

*Most* people who clamour for HTML, in /my/ experience 
of course, are those who demonstrate an inabilty to 
use plain text.
