some programs make it a pain to save mail peticularly in html format
espcily-in the case i am presenting - as a draft then you cant use it
<mail> </mail> eqivilant to body tags except drafts and html
enhanced-mail features would be easaly distinguished.
<mailto> </mailto> saving draft mail espcily netscape4.0 + 
and microsoft internet exploer 4.0+ are dumb about retaining destanation
when saved unix macheines on mime 1.0 dont req and send it back 
<subject> </subject>
<mailfrom> </mailfrom>
these tags could help browsers disingwish mail from html pages-that are
website related wich is a problem
web browsers that eat your mail before you can send it 
an servers that maungle and maul it to death before arivail
your adrees is set 
you e-mail it 
you know the adress is  corect
and the mechine spits it back in your face
may be theise tages would stop that
i have grown werey of netscape 4 chewing my mail
and web-mail sevrvers also
so i though i e-mail the big dog and get it fixed
also active-x script and all propritary tags should be submited
<blink> from netscape should work on all browses , except dos or text
only </blink>
<marQuee> microsofts tag should work the same way on all browsers
</marquee>
except text only
active-x should work under all browsesers the same way
thanks mike out
