I have the same problem. Each message is packed in the digest unchanged.
So, the complete digest file is mixed which is not correct HTML format;
text-only, HTML and other non-HTML.

Either the digest packer will have to
1) strip the HTML from the individual messages, or
2) reformat the messages to be one large HTML message.

Alternately, somebody will have to find a Digest reader that recognizes
the multiple HTML messages in the Digest.
