I added in my resource file:

What I see in my html-pages is the following:

This states what content-type was listed in the raw message.

Furthermore, the body message text is print to the default font face

400?  Your readers must have very wide screens.  BTW, with the
nonfixed option, setting maxwidth has no real effect unless you specify
the keepspace option.

the quote argument appearantly  does not cause any effect.

The manual says:
quote--->  Italicize quoted message text.

1) However, if I include in my message "Mhonarc", this is not 
italicized in the respective HTML page.

The term "quoted text" in this context refers to text referenced in
replies.  For example, the lines starting with a ">" in this message
denotes quoted text.

2) Another problem (for me!) is that with this filter that HTML 
special characters will be converted into entities. That is not what 
I want: I would like <b>Mhonarc</b> to be printed as bold and not as 
&lt;b&gt;Mhonarc&lt;/b&gt; when viewing the source code of the HTML-

Then text/html should be specified as the content-type in the raw
message.  If you require some "tagging" checks in text/plain messages,
you'll need to write your own filter (see MIMEFILTERS resource page).
