A New 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 HTML Documents 
       Author(s) : J. Palme, A. Hopman
       Filename  : draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-00.txt
       Pages     : 17

Although HTML 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 memo describes a set of guidelines that will allow conforming mail 
user agents to be able to send, deliver and display these HTML objects. In 
addition it is hoped that these techniques will also apply to the wider 
category of URI-enabled objects. In order to do this, the memo introduces 
two new MIME content-headers with the names "Content-Location" and

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-00.txt".
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.
For questions, please mail to Internet-Drafts@cnri.reston.va.us.

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