	You don't get it. OK. XSLT, coff, and elf formats are also
 standards. There a re a large number of thinbgs that can be
 encapsulated as MIME, in cluding sheel sciprts, and perl programs.

	You think that means I can send a perl script that ultimately
 sends UTF-8 to the parrallel port as a valid email message?

	MIME used to send attached files is not the same as
 non-external-file contents of a message.
