        Huh?  After decoding Base64, it's expected to be anything that
        was encoded, be it XML, HTML, plain text, or whatever else.

I'm talking about the parsing of the tag (perhaps I'm not seeing how simple it is), as well as providing a stream for rendering (lynx's notion of that is a little crude).
