Re: The TEXT/HTML Content Type in e-mail
Huh? What changes? Today I expect the mail user agent to invoke the
receiving agent which, after it does its stuff, invokes the browser.
In the future the receiving agent functionality gets incorporated into
combined or cooperative mail agents and Web browsers.
Today, the browser gets what it sees now; no change!
No change to the mail user agent beyond support for Multipart/Related.
That change or new requirement we agree on, don't we?
So there must be something unclear since you prefer a solution that
uses existing Web browsers and I'm suggesting a model that does just
There is no single receiving agent, rather one is needed that matches
the storage and cache capabilities of a mail agent and browser pair.
I don't think we'll need a lot of those and perhaps the receiving
agent functionality could be configurable.
