I agree with both, and have tried to adhere to both in my own email.

Actually, I'm not sure HTML is supposed to be for markup. Nobody
on this list will argue that HTML is a markup language. It is rather
a presentation language. If someone argues otherwise, I'll think less
of them. (not that they care)
Anyone that tries to convince me that a <b> tag is markup, and not
presentation, is going to lose the argument. Have at it.
