I have two questions with respect to URL's and encapsulated images.

Is there a URL's <scheme> that specifies a reference to another MIME part?

This is required in a multipart mail message containing inline images to be refer-
enced from within a text/html part, as follows:

	Content-Type: image/gif
	Content-Disposition: inline; filename="a_name.gif"
	Content-Type: text/html
	... <img src="inline:a_name.gif">

In other words, I want to send an encapluated image/gif within a mail message. The
image is to be referenced from a text/html section. Note that a hyper link (like
http) is to be avoided.

A second related question is how to instruct the receiving end to show the
image only from the text/html section and not from the image/gif section.
