web pages have an *RFC* compliant format that begins with, or similar;
[spacings added in words to hopefully prevent interpretation]

<!D O C T Y P E html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN" \

<h t m l>
  <h e a d>

and closes with;

  </b o d y>
</h t m l>

and tags that cause a 'formating' to what appears with in a page.

email, with *RFC* compliant code, starts with, or similar'

Content-Type: t e x t/h t m l; charset=ISO-8859-1

and closes with;


save an email that is both 'text/plain' and 'text/html' to a file
and open in a web browser.


peace out.
