You were complaining about your mail reader breaking URLs into half. One
reason is when people forget to format URLs correctly in emails:

How is this:

<http://www.3111skyline.com/download/screenshots/driveTempFailure-Probabil
ityDensity.jpg>

Any more "correct" that just writing the URL out? Specifically, what IETF
RFC, W3C recommendation, or IEC, ISO, or IEEE standard specifies this?

I've used "<URL: $URL >", "<$URL>", and simply "$URL" and none of them give
consistently good results. The second is broken just as often as the other
two, and some clients stick the trailing '>' in the URL.
