I agree with Mark. Another alternative, would involve
"multipart/related" as defined in RFC2112:
The MIME Multipart/Related Content-type

multipart/related is used in RFC 2110:
MHTML: MIME E-mail Encapsulation of Aggregate Documents

This technology is also used over HTTP. This RFC is 
more stable than the fragment interchange spec.
