Very poor HTML rendering with e-mail attachments (using Blackberry Internet Service)

I have some PDA-oriented HTML that renders well with the recent Palm and Blackberry Browsers.  However, when I attach the HTML to an email and view it on the Blackberry 7130e, the quality of the rendering is very, very poor.  This confirguration is using the Blackberry Internet Service ("BIS") via Verizon.  I believe this attachment  facility works the same way with the BES ( -- it does not use the BlackBerry Browser but instead "some" email attachment viewing facility (I suspect!)).

Does anyone have experience with the 4.0 or 4.1 Blackberry software rendering HTML from email attachments?  If so, are there any known "best practices documents" for using this facility.  I've looked all over the www.blackberry.com site for some useful information on this.

Note:  Including the HTML via a URL attached to the email does not work for security reason ( -- the HTML would need to be put on a non-secure, public web site....).

Any information or insights appreciated!

There is a marked improvement in quality using the BES attachment service.....and you are correct, it is a propriatary part of the BB software, rather than the web browser.
