> So the mime library call you are talking about is super simple - it just dumps the htmlText of the field into the HTML (so is fine as long as its just simple formatting involved), and then looks for inline images and attaches them as other parts.
> The code is in the mime extension (com.livecode.library.mime) and the handler in question (mimeEncodeFieldAsMIMEMultipartDocument) is built out of other public mime library APIs... It would be relatively straightforward to create your own version and customize the HTML output to your needs.
