Ack! I think your new diagram is not adequate, and has several
mistakes and confusing elements.

You have 'encapsulator' and 'encoder' on both sides, even though the

HTML markup is a sequence of _characters_ that is then subsequently
represented as a sequence of _octets_; to define HTML markup as "a
sequence of octets" is at least misleading.

I'm disgruntled also with the wording over "line break characters", I
think it may also be a wording issue, though: I think it is untenable
to recommend that HTML in mail violate mail protocol standards, merely
to preserve data integrity checks that might come through another
