Because banks and many other institutions have prioritized all-singing,
all-dancing, bloated, horribly-badly-marked-up HTML email with
"stationary" and logos and pictures and web bugs far, FAR ahead of
security, privacy, accessability, portability and other -ilities that
I'm too lazy to enumerate just now.  Besides: it's not like it's *their*
accounts that will get hosed or *their* money that will get lost.
Things like that only happen to the little people.
