The memo "MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate HTML Documents (MHTML)"
(draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-04.txt) specifies how to send packaged aggregate
HTML objects in MIME e-mail. This memo is an accompanying informational
document, intended to be an aid to developers. This document is not an
Issues discussed are implementation methods, caching strategies, problems
with rewriting of URIs, making messages suitable both for mailers which can
and which cannot handle Multipart/related and handling recipients which do
not have full Internet connectivity.

NOTE: The mail server at ds.internic.net 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.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
