Description

16 years ago
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.
