Possible answers are that the web "designer" doesn't know how to do
things on the server, they they're unable to access the server to do
this (either through "security" or excessive bureaucracy), or that
they're required to use a certain design or CMS tool which must do it
this way for compatibility.

happened to the email as it crossed the Internet after this text was
