How can VBA send an email that includes both text AND html formats?

I am using VBA in Access 2000 to email to all recipients on a list (on email at a time). It uses Outlook objects for each message and works well with html as the format. How do I include the plain text version in the same email, - so the clients browser or email software can chose plain text if it has too, and html if it is capable? I am assuming the dual format is possible if I use some type of MIME.

Many thanks.  
'we are in a loop which produces single email addresses as the var xx
 

Set objOutlook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application")

Set objOutlookMsg = objOutlook.CreateItem(olMailItem)

    With objOutlookMsg

Set objOutlookRecip = Nothing ' clear previous recipient from loop

Set objOutlookRecip = .Recipients.Add(xx) 

         objOutlookRecip.Type = olTo

         .Subject = Me!subj      '<--Subject

.HTMLBODY = "<HTML><H2><b>This is HTML Text in the BODY of the email</b></H2></HTML>"

        .HTMLBody = "<HTML><Head></Head><Body><table><tr><td>" & hdrtbl & "</td><tr><td><hr>" & Me!msgtxt & "</td></tr><tr><td><small>" & signath & "</small></td></tr></table></Body></HTML>"

              xxx = "Email address ERROR for " & xx

                MsgBox xxx

            End If

        Next

       .Send

 End With

 

'Cleanup Code

Set objOutlookMsg = Nothing

Set objOutlook = Nothing

Set objOutlookRecip = Nothing

Set objOutlookAttach = Nothing

Me!Text14 = xx & " " & zz

'go to next email address in loop

This may be an uncessary concern. Every email client I checked has the ability to show html or at least filter it out.
