Heaven forbid.  The occasional post to this list does appear as an 
html attachment and I usually just delete it without reading it 
because of the awkwardness of reading it and more particularly of 
deleting it.  

What I'm curious about is 

	(a) the difference in the way mutt deals with html emails 
	(sometimes outputting them as normal text, sometimes presenting 
	them as attachments), 

	(b) the difference in the way different MUAs (I hope that's the 
	right term) present html emails such as the one someone was 
	complaining about above (inline or attachment), and 

	(c) the difference in the way different MUAs (?) send these html 
	emails.  It seems as if there's some way of indicating that the 
	text should be inlined but that some senders don't use it and 
	that some receivers don't understand it.  Okay, that's my non-
	techie way of seeing it.

Any ideas?
