How many of these are Netsurf-friendly?   I'm currently struggling to
view data being 'shared' via Dropbox:  the images can be extracted from
the raw HTML via a two-pass search, but goodness knows if there's
anything else in there that I'm supposed to be seeing - and I've also
had large scans sent to me via https://www.wetransfer.com/ with similar
lack of accessibility (the website there claimed to need Flash)

On the whole I agree with Martin that small attachments are not a
problem, particularly given the vast size of the auto-generated HTML
copies of e-mails currently being sent around :-(   (I've just received
a 43K announcement from eBay, compared to which a 5K attachment to a
plaintext e-mail even when encoded, is trivial....)
