   this is an idea I had.  Tought you would have like to hear it.  The
problem rose from the fact that I wanted to send a document over a
newsgroup and since I only use HTML as text formatting, I used the MIME
type text/html.  But the little pictures I wanted to add, had to be
somewhere on the net, revealing an address.  So I tought of a new tag, 
the <FOOT> container.  In this tag, their could be any file encoded in
UU or base64 or, even better, using MIME.  In the <img> tag, as an
example, the src could have a referal instead of an URI.  This would
bring HTML to be an alternativeto PDF.  And as for MIME, major web
browsers have a builtin mail reader who already have MIME capabilities.
And security-wize, all the files are encoded so it doesn't bring any

Hope this will help anyone,
