Unfortunately, when I looked further there were other odd items mingled
in the text and HTML include "= " and some non-English characters, so
just removing the 3D isn't enough, and since in my client it becomes a
double quote, simply discarding could invalidate the HTML (say a URL
with a space), and yes, I need to keep this stuff looking right,
including the HTML.

        I don't know much about what appears in email, but a few
thoughts.
        
        unless you're trying to reformat the email EXACTLY as it would
appear in a
        client, I'd replace anything and everything that appears between
"< and >"
        (including the ") with a CRLF, and process the rest of the email
as
        unformated text.
        
        it appears that the '3D' stuff is some way of escaping a value
somehow.
        i'm sure it's not taken literally anyway - take away the 3D from
those html
        name value pairs, and you have very valid html formatting
values.
