Subject: New version of the MHTML INFO document
From: Jacob Palme <[log in to unmask]>
Reply-To:IETF working group on HTML in e-mail <[log in to unmask]>
Date:Tue, 16 Jun 1998 17:32:13 +0200

text/plain (41 lines)

I have just submitted a new version of the MHTML
informational draft. You can find it at URL and if you wait a
few days, also at the IETF drafts directories.

Here is a list of the changes done to the document:

(1) A paragraph about one disadvantage with MAILTO action elements has
been added to section 10. The text of this paragraph is:

A disadvantage with the "mailto:" URL as ACTION, however, is that this
may not work if the user has not specified his e-mail address in the
preferences of this HTML viewer. This is common for multi-user

(2) A new section 13: Default font size has been added with the text:

13.   Default font size

Many HTML editors and viewers allow the user to specify the size of the
default font (<FONT SIZE=3> or <FONT SIZE="+0"> according to personal
wishes, for example 10 pt or 12 pt or 14 pt depending on eye sight and
screen distance. This setting should *not* cause a change in the FONT
SIZE= value in the generated HTML which is produced and sent. The reason
for this is that otherwise users may inadvertently send whole letters
with the text in <FONT SIZE=1> or <FONT SIZE=2>, which may be easy to
read for the sender but difficult to read for some recipients.

Similarly, a user choice of default FONT, to for example GENEVA or ARIAL,
should not cause <FONT FACE=GENEVA> or <FONT FACE=ARIAL> to be sent. User
who wish to send e-mail with <FONT SIZE=2> or <FONT FACE=GENEVA> must
explicitly specify this, for example using a FONT command in their HTML
editor or e-mail text editor.

(3) A temporary issue list has been added, see next e-mail to this
mailing list.
