Hey all,

I get today a Interview request about html5 in email. I will promote our group and idea of a new html for emails.

Are there any objections?

MUA = Mail User Agent, the thing that actually renders email messages

One piece of HTML-in-email that is very important but is also relatively self-contained is the integration of HTML with the MIME tree. In particular:
1. How the tussle of charset information between specification via HTML <meta> tags versus specification in MIME Content-Type header.
2. The use of cid: for internal links as part of multipart/related. As a practical matter, some MUAs are going to have to use URL-rewriting to make this cid: logic work, which means a general agreement as to what can (/should) be allowed to specified via a cid. E.g., <img src>, <video><source>, CSS url(), <link href>, etc.

There are other issues that aren't on the top of my head, but those are the most important (to me at least).

Beware of bugs in the above code; I have only proved it correct, not tried it. -- Donald E. Knuth
