If your mail reader is MIME aware you might be able to read
HTML mail. My mail reader will start Netscape or another
web reader when I get a HTML mail. It wouldn't surprice me
if Netscape can do that by itself. :-)

What is a HTML mail? It's a mail in HTML 2.0 format with the
following header field:
  Content-type: text/html

I don't know if Majordomo can do that, but it could certainly
be done with some patching. :-)
