using html instead of plain text in mozilla thunderbird

I generally use plain text mode in Mozilla Thunderbird for all of my email. Sometimes I need to send off an HTML mail, though. It turns out that holding shift and then clicking "Write" or "Reply" is all it takes to switch to HTML mode for just that one email. I read about it here:

Essentially, hold down shift when you click "Write" or "Reply". That's that.
