Currently, as in IE and NS 4.x, mailto: form submission (and the text/plain encoding) do not encode file data at all, instead just sending the filename. We should do better and allow people to send actual files from a webpage without requiring a server-side CGI. This would be an immensely useful feature and I suspect it would not break sites since there is no point in having <input type=file> in a form that can't have files. Depends, of course, on bug 61893 being fixed.
