I have a Verizon Yahoo account I no longer use.  I logged in to see
what you were seeing.  Some observations:

* The Web 2.0 version refused to load with Chrome and wanted me to
load. FF, IE or Safari (I can spoof konqueror, but don't know how to
spoof chrome)

* I loaded the Web 2.0 interface in FF, but it complained that my OS
was "untested".  It allowed me to proceed, none the less.  That said,
I could find no options on a compose window for turning HTML on or
off.  There was an options drop down in the Inbox view, but it did
nothing when I clicked it several times.

* Switched to "Classic View".  This gave me a link to the upper right
of the email body text box in a composer view to switch between rich
and plain text.

Looks like classic view is what you want.
