FS#2710 Support HTML templates for HTML emails
DokuWiki sends emails in HTML already (if it hasn't been disabled) but currently custom HTML code can only be used in the wrapper around these emails but not in the content itself which is generated from the plain text templates.
I don't suggest that DokuWiki should include special HTML versions of the mail templates but that it should use them when they exist so they can be added by users who want to customize the HTML emails. The HTML templates could have the same name as the text templates just with .html as extension.
In addition ...
I think a good html email includes a link to view the email in a web browser, which can make it easier to get around the difficulties of providing good looking emails for all clients/devices - the user clicks the link to view the email (in all its intended glory) on the originating site.
