Not very likely. Possibly an alternate mail client would be helpful, but I've not researched this at all. On the very very rare occasion that I need to create HTML-based mail, I use a Mac program...

Dark Mode is great, but many menubar items don't cotton to it very well in terms of visibility (this will be fixed by them in due course). I'm seeing some font/graphic anomolies in Dark Mode, but I...
