HTML announce list confirmation messages

Dear DH team – it would be great to be able to use HTML formatted emails to acknowledge/confirm a signup to an announcement list.

Would it be relatively easy to implement the html email functionality for the actual announcements for the textarea where one inserts the confirmation email message by using similar code to parse html that’s pasted into the box and then send the email out as html?

Would be a big improvement in the branding that could be applied to the email welcome message – giving an “in-house” custom feel, rather than a strictly “technical” feel.

Thanks for your consideration!
