Making the digest digestible

There are a couple of things that could be done to make the digests of
XMLDEV more digestible that require little or no human intervention,
just (I assume) different software choices:

1. Each digest could be preceded by a list of topics.  Since this is
done in the XSL digest, there ought to be people around here who know
the correct incantations.

2. Each message could be in the form of an attachment, which would
make it easier to see where the message boundaries are.  Although the
XSL digest doesn't do this, some other digests such as those
associated with the forums for the KDE user interface for Linux do
it.   Again, I'm pretty sure it's all automated.
