Haven't ran across them either but have found that they are: "MHT files are an IE/Win thing, it saves a web page as a single document complete with all images. The format is a standard mime/multipart e-mail message, a mime decoding program should be able to turn it into something usable with your OS and browser of choice." Believe it stands for MIME HTML.

Found this info:

Are you using Safari to surf, or something else like FireFox?

UnMHTML: Read MHT files on a Mac
Sat Jan 29 2005 02:09 #
MHTML (or simply MHT, as it seems to be more commonly known) is a standard for storing multiple pieces of related web content in a single file. It's best known for its use in Microsoft Internet Explorer for Windows, which creates them when you elect to save a page as "Web archive, single file". More interesting to me, of course, is its use as the primary file format for Onfolio reports.

Until now it has been pretty difficult for Mac users to read MHT files, especially ones that contain multiple web pages. It surprised me that there are no MHT-decoding utilities for Mac, since MHTML is a fairly straightforward specialization of MIME--if you have access to a decent MIME parser, it's not too much work. (Update: According to this forum post, GraphicConverter will support MHT.)

Luckily, I find myself in possession of a Mac mini, a personal license to IntelliJ, and a quite capable little MIME parser. So I hacked together UnMHTML (click to download), a Mac OS X-packaged Java app that breaks MHT files down to their individual parts and attempts to fix up the references in the HTML accordingly.

It is basically "proof of concept" quality for now--there is almost no UI, and you are likely to see at least a couple of broken images for each MHT--but if anyone ends up using/needing it, I can make it better.
Also, this thread has some interesting answers: http://forums.macosxhints.com/showthread.php?t=28432

GC worked for me!
I was just having the same problem today with trying to find something to open a .mht. I was able to right-click on the .mht link and download it. It saved it as a .mht.html so i deleted the .html extention. Then i just dragged it to graphic converter and it opened fine.

(also a little hint if needed...you can drag links from the menu bar or anywhere else in safari... and drag them to the download window and they will automatically download)
