   i'd try opening one and using File>Save As 
and save as some .html page in your 
/home/cheryl directory. then use email to 
create a message to yourself and attach the 
file. Send, wait, receive, and verify. 

   caveat: i usually have the less-elegant 
solutions and sometimes none at all. but no 
harm to try while waiting for the smarter 
ones' answers.
