I'd argue for a simple subset of HTML. That would give you the best 
of both worlds. The source would still be in plain ASCII.  Some 
simple "pretty printing" (lines wrapped to a standard length, 
paragraph tags on separate lines, headers on their own line, etc.) 
can make the HTML source <I>reasonably</I> readable as is. And, of 
course, it would be understood by existing Web browsers.
