    You cannot use html files directly as Readme or License files because their content has to be displayed in multiple modes, including text. On Unix, you can easily convert your html file into text using:

    lynx -dump license.html > license.txt

    I don't understand 'because' in your answer. Why can't we use multiple files for multiple modes?
