Travelocity Changes Fare Watcher Alert Format

For many years now I've used Travelocity as my primary destination for researching airfare. I've tweaked their fare watcher email alerts to give me just what I want (as far as destintations and price changes).

In the last week or so they've changed their email messages from text to HTML, or at least moved to a more designed HTML alert. For personal mail I use pine, which isn't so hot at making sense of HTML, so once friendly and easily understood email messages from Travelocity are now somewhat cryptic and difficult to decipher.

Do I stop using pine? Do I find another fare alert system?
