would it be simpler to allow the inlined data actually be send just in place

so the html file would contain the text, and the image data in one piece
something like
<image href=included>....</image> with the ... replaced by the actual
image data.
<image href="url"> for the old style

there must however be a better syntax than I suggested above.
