Protocol Action: MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate Documents, such as HTML (MHTML) to Proposed Standard


The IESG <[log in to unmask]>


IETF working group on HTML in e-mail <[log in to unmask]>


Fri, 10 Jan 1997 12:05:40 -0500





text/plain (1 lines)

The IESG has approved the following Internet-Drafts as Proposed Standards:

 1. MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate Documents, such as HTML

 2. Content-ID and Message-ID Uniform Resource Locators

 3. The MIME Multipart/Related Content-type

These documents are the product of the MIME Encapsulation of Aggregate
HTML Documents Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Keith Moore
and Harald Alvestrand.

Technical Summary

 These documents together form a well-defined mechanism for sending
 sets of objects that contain pointers to each other, for instance a
 Web page with its associated images and sub-pages, in an E-mail

Working Group Summary

 There was complete WG consensus on the solution documented here.

Protocol Quality

 There is already one implementation that sends and receives such
 E-mail messages. Others are planned. The spec has been reviewed for
 the IESG by Harald Tveit Alvestrand
