Thank you, Philip! that's exactly right--the primary (only?) difference is in how quoted replies are shaded. For reference, here's how it seems to work with plain text email:

Standard: Shades of gray
Simple: Blue for first level, green for older levels
Classic: Shades of blue
Apple Mail: Different color for each level
