 A Revised 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     : Sending HTML in E-mail, an informational supplement 
                   to RFC ???: MIME E-mail Encapsulation of 
                   Aggregate HTML Documents (MHTML)                                       
       Author(s) : J. Palme
       Filename  : draft-ietf-mhtml-info-04.txt
       Pages     : 11
       Date      : 10/16/1996

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 
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.

Internet-Drafts are also available by mail.	
Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-info-04.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.

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