A very nice first step for support for HTML mail. Thanks, Alex!
This is definitely easier than viewing the raw mail message and trying
to read past all the tags. I did exercise some editorial license and
change the commit message, (removing references to future ideas,
etc.). Here's what I ended up with before pushing:
Add some very rudimentary support for handling html parts
If there is an html mime-part in the message and it's the first part,
it gets inlined using `mm-display-part' to convert it to plain text.
The HTML content is still available as a non-text part as well.
