How can I make simple format-type customizations to ALL OOTB workflow related emails?

I have found that many pre-Sharepoint 2010 posts indicated that OOTB workflow emails are in fact 'alerts', and therefore OOTB workflow emails could be customized using the same technique which is: making a customized version of alerttemplates.xml and even using IAlertNotifyHandler to intercept all alert emails. However, it seems that OOTB workflow and workflow task emails are not affected by changes to my customalerttemplates.xml file (which I do follow with stsadm updatealerttemplates, iisreset, and timer service restart).

This is what I used as a guide to customize alerts.

What am I missing? Can OOTB workflow emails be customized?

Thanks!

Jeff

You can "bump" your question by making an edit - it will again draw attention. I suggest that you mention alerts in the title. I tagged your question for you. –  BGM Nov 23 '12 at 6:11
    
This is a similar question to one from a few days ago (Except yours is better worded) sharepoint.stackexchange.com/questions/51777/… –  Hugh Wood Nov 23 '12 at 14:56
