&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I have checked again, Netscape mail client doesn't do
<TT>type= </TT>with m/rel.

<P>Actually rfc2112 says
<BR>---> exceprted from 2112 ---
<BR><B><TT>2.&nbsp; Multipart/Related Registration Information</TT></B>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; The following form is copied from RFC 1590, Appendix
A.&nbsp; To:&nbsp; IANA@isi.edu Subject:&nbsp; Registration of new Media
Type content-type/subtype</TT>
<BLOCKQUOTE><TT>Media Type name:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;

<BR><TT>Encoding considerations:&nbsp;&nbsp; Multipart content-types cannot
have encodings.</TT>
<BR><TT>Security considerations:&nbsp;&nbsp; Depends solely on the referenced
type.</TT>
<BR><TT>Published specification:&nbsp;&nbsp; RFC-REL (this document).</TT>
<BR>&nbsp;</BLOCKQUOTE>
<B><TT>3.1.&nbsp; The Type Parameter</TT></B>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; <FONT COLOR="#FF0000">The type parameter must be specified
and its value is the MIME media type of the "root" body part.</FONT>&nbsp;
It permits a MIME user agent to determine the content-type without reference
to the enclosed body part.&nbsp; If the value of the type parameter and
the root body part's content-type differ then the User Agent's behavior
is undefined.</TT>

; value cannot begin with "&lt;"</TT>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; Note that the parameter values will usually require
quoting.&nbsp; Msg-id</TT>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; contains the special characters "&lt;", ">", "@",
and perhaps other</TT>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; special characters.&nbsp; If msg-id contains quoted-strings,
those quote</TT>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; marks must be escaped.&nbsp; Similarly, the type parameter
contains the</TT>
<BR><TT>&nbsp;&nbsp; special character "/".</TT>
