 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     : MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate HTML Documents

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 
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 
document specifies the MIME content-headers "Content-Location" and 

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-spec-01.txt".
     "get draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-01.ps".

Send a message to:  mailserv@ds.internic.net. In the body type: 
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-01.txt".
     "FILE /internet-drafts/draft-ietf-mhtml-spec-01.ps".
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@ietf.org

implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version
