It depends on your MUA (email program). Some will display the multiple
parts all inline, some will display some of them as attachments. I
believe the inline is the "proper" way based on the standards, but is
not required, and is not universally done, thus the qualification. (and
infact, it is a frequent question BECAUSE some major programs display it
as an attachment).

Note also, the problem ONLY occurs with "HTML formatted" messages, not
plain text, as for plain text messages it is safe to just add them, as
there is no formatting to get in the way.
