Read the standards as to what HTTP and HTML do?  For me (and
emacs) HTTP/HTML can be strict.  If what you generate for an
attachment is strict HTML, it should display in any browser.  Or,
any browser which understands (or has HTML processing turned on).

For me, there is NO html formatted email.  If you send HTML only,
it is spam.  Include a text only version of what you send as the
main body.
