 A Revised Internet-Draft is available from the on-line Internet-Drafts
 directories. This draft is a work item of the MIME Encapsulation of
 Aggregate HTML Documents Working Group of the IETF.

       Title     : MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate Documents,
                   such as HTML (MHTML)
       Author(s) : J. Palme, A. Hopman
       Filename  : draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-02.txt
       Pages     : 17
       Date      : 07/29/1996

Although HTML [RFC 1866] was designed within the context of MIME, more than
the specification of HTML as defined in RFC 1866 is needed for two
electronic mail user agents to be able to interoperate using HTML as a
document format. These issues include the naming of objects that are
normally referred to by URIs, and the means of aggregating objects that go
together. This document describes a set of guidelines that will allow
conforming mail user agents to be able to send, deliver and display these
objects, such as HTML objects, that can contain links represdented by URIs.
In order to be able to handle inter-linked objects, the document proposes
to use the MIME type multipart/related and specifies the MIME
content-headers "Content-Location" and "Content-Base".

Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP.  Login with the username
"anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address.  After logging in,
type "cd internet-drafts" and then
     "get draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-02.txt".

NOTE: The mail server at can return the document in
      MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility.  To use this
      feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
      command.  To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
      a MIME-compliant mail reader.  Different MIME-compliant mail readers
      exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
      "multipart" MIME messages (i.e., documents which have been split
      up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
      how to manipulate these messages.

For questions, please mail to [log in to unmask]

Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
of the Internet-Draft.
