This draft is a work item of the MIME Encapsulation of Aggregate HTML
Documents Working Group of the IETF.
Title : Sending HTML in MIME, an informational
supplement to the RFC: MIME Encapsulation of
Aggregate Documents, such as HTML (MHTML)

The memo 'MIME Encapsulation of Aggregate Documents, such as HTML
(MHTML)' (draft-ietf-mhtml-rev-05.txt) specifies how to send packaged
aggregate HTML objects in MIME format. This memo is an accompanying
informational document, intended to be an aid to developers. This
document is not an Internet standard.
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 ietf.org 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 of the
