To solve web bugs, the mail reader/ html renderer should refuse to load
content not within the transmitted message.
You can get images and other junk needed for complex documents in there by
having a URL that refers to other parts of a mime/multipart message. For
example "img src=stuff.gif" can consider the _directory_ to be the
relative path if the page is loaded from a web browser, but the message to
be the relative path if the page is loaded via email.
