    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?

    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)
