I feel strongly that plain text is the most basic, universally readable
format, and should always be accepted, no matter what.

I often like to read documentation on paper, and it's a lot easier to
print something in plain text than in HTML or another format.
(Especially if you have a non-Postscript printer and are printing the
docs from DOS or Windows, *before* you install Linux.) If people want
Postscript, then by all means give it to them, but don't forget to
include plain text too.
