Wrong.  A Mime Driver takes any input data and outputs a text/html  
representation of contents.

There is no difference between "attached files" and text parts.  They  
are all the same.  Every part is an attachment, and every attachment  
is a message part.

Essentially, there are two ways to handle a message part - allow a  
user to download the raw data to be handled by their local computer,  
or to attempt to parse this data and produce some sort of useful  
output.  The former is essentially the download button, the latter is  
what a Mime Viewer does.

I guess I have no idea what you are talking about then.  If you are  
talking about syntax highlighting the rendered data inside of a Latex  
file, this is not syntax highlighting as the term is commonly used.   
Syntax highlighting refers to marking up source code based on the  
language's grammar - which we (should) already support for latex files.
