It can be plain text or html (maybe there are other options, too, I
don't know).  If you are using a script to generate signatures, for
example, I think evolution expects html.  I just surround my plain text
by <pre> </pre> tags.

If you're not sure whether evolution is expecting plain text or html,
fire up gconf-editor and take a look at the contents of the 'signature'
key under /apps/evolution/mail.  The <signature> tag will has a 'format'
attribute that will be either 'text/plain' or 'text/html'.
