another screenshot -- more complex html


Keith was wondering how spaces handled HTML email and I posted the screenshot for an RSS Entry feed from Scripting News. He then commented (here as well as an update of his original entry):

Hey cool! I'm not trying to be disparaging, but how's it handle e-mails from places like Amazon.com?
No disparage at all :-). The question is valid because Amazon (and other places--and many email clients) don't send simply HTML email with a "text/html" MIME type, they send "multiplart/alternative" or "multipart/mixed" messages that are more complex to parse and require a bit of special handling. Spaces can handle them too though. Here is a screenshot of an autoresponse from Amazon:
