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 Documents, such as HTML (MHTML) Author(s) : J. Palme, A. Hopmann Filename : draft-ietf-mhtml-rev-00.txt Pages : 16 Date : 07/07/1997 Although HTML [RFC 1866] 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 document describes a set of guidelines that will allow conforming mail user agents to be able to send, deliver and display these objects, such as HTML objects, that can contain links represented by URIs. In order to be able to handle inter-linked objects, the document uses the MIME type multipart/related and specifies the MIME content-headers "Content-Location" and "Content-Base". Temporary note This is a revision of RFC 2110 to take into account problems which have cropped up by developers when developing software adhering to RFC 2110. RFC 2110 is an IETF Proposed Standard, and the intention is that this document, possibly after more revisions, will either be submitted as a revised Proposed Standard or as a Draft Standard. Internet-Drafts are available by anonymous FTP. Login with the username "anonymous" and a password of your e-mail address. After logging in, type "cd internet-drafts" and then "get draft-ietf-mhtml-rev-00.txt". A URL for the Internet-Draft is: ftp://ds.internic.net/internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-rev-00.txt Internet-Drafts directories are located at: o Africa: ftp.is.co.za o Europe: ftp.nordu.net ftp.nis.garr.it o Pacific Rim: munnari.oz.au o US East Coast: ds.internic.net o US West Coast: ftp.isi.edu Internet-Drafts are also available by mail. Send a message to: firstname.lastname@example.org. In the body type: "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-rev-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. Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the Internet-Draft.
