Larry,

We agreed at yesterday's IPP meeting that IPP event notification using the
'mailto:' scheme would always send both 'text/plain' and the equivalent
'application/ipp' MIME types.  Then (new) programs could use the mailto
delivery method to get events that they could process.

The 'text/plain' contains the human readable information in any format that
is contained in the 'application/ipp' MIME type, namely five or six
attributes.

Should the entire mail body be the 'multi-part/alternative' MIME type which
contains both the 'text/plain' and 'application/ipp' MIME types, since one
is an alternative representation of the other?

Or should the mail body be the text and the 'application/ipp' be an
attachment?

Which approach would work the best with existing mail readers (which would
ignore the 'application/ipp' MIME type and display the text)?

Thanks,
Tom Hastings
