My reader handles MIME just fine, thanks.  Sounds like your Microsoft mailer 
is putting on airs  :-)

I'll have a look at this, but I've also given some thought to an RDF repr for 
Versa since Arnold deVos mentioned it might be useful to some.

I don't really think it's important for an RDF QL to be in RDF, and I would 
much rather not work with one expressed solely in RDF.  Then again, I'd also 
rather not work with one in the SQL idiom.
