In current Web browsers, there is no uniform way to specify that a
user clicking on a link will be presented with an editable view of a
Web Distinguished Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) server.  For
example, it is frequently desirable to be able to click on a link and
have this link open a window that can handle drag-and-drop
interaction with the resources of a WebDAV server.

This document specifies a mechanism and a document format that
enables WebDAV servers to send "mounting" information to a WebDAV
client.  The mechanism is designed to work on any platform and with
any combination of browser and WebDAV client, relying solely on the
well-understood dispatch of documents through their MIME type.  This memo 
provides information for the Internet community.
