How do I use elm on HP-UX to e-mail an ATTACHED file
to someone on the internet. I can easily e-mail data in the
body of an e-mail; howver, no luck as yet as to how to send an attachment.

The is noway to send attachement with elm via the interfaces.
However you could use the command line as:
elm -s "Subject here" -A file1.txt file2.jpg
In order to send attachment you must have a file call mime.types in your .elm directory

Though there is noway to send attachment with elm, but you can use the following work around :

1) For Text file (non binary files)
elm -s Subject xyz@abc.com < example.txt

2) For Binary files - you can use 'uuencode' to convert it into a ASCII file which can be sent as above
