Yes, Eudora generates HTML with very limited features.  You only get a 
choice of five colors.  Here's an example:

Content-type: text/html; charset=us-ascii

<!doctype html public "-//W3C//DTD W3 HTML//EN">
<html><head><style type="text/css"><!--
blockquote, dl, ul, ol, li { padding-top: 0 ; padding-bottom: 0 }
  --></style><title>color and style test</title></head><body>
<div>This is<font color="#FF0000"> red</font> and this is<font
color="#0000FF"> blue</font>.&nbsp;<u> Underlined</u> and<b>
