I wasn't aware that Active-X was an Internet protocol. I thought it's
just something that you can download via some Internet protocol and
do with it what you like. But, since it's a real protocol, there must
be some RFC (or at least an Internet draft) with the definition which
I skipped. Could you point me to it, please?

Also, long lines are not very friendly to some software out there.
Could you tell your MUA not to produce lines longer than 80 characters?
Thank you.

Hmmm... My OS doesn't know what is System Window... And neither do I.
Could you explain what that means? I don't see what has Internet got
to do with SYSV messages.
