Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii" ?

Has anyone been able to make Yarn call an external web-browser
or HTML-converter/viewer when receiving Mime messages with
these header fields:
Mime-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/html; charset="us-ascii"

I tryed to modify the MAILCAP file so now it is:

text/html; showhtml %s
text/*; edit %s
image/gif; 2show %s

When I read the messages Yarn (v.89 under DOS) it makes a call to
the showhtml.bat command (that makes a call to doslynx.exe),
and a temporary (%s = somefile.TAA) file comes up. When I save
this as a .HTM file and load it, things work. BUT when I exit
to Yarn, everything locks up. The onely way out then, is to
re-boot :(

Perhaps I'm running out of memory (640+380 Kb) or harddisk space
(20Mb), but I see no indications thereof.

Any suggestions?
