I think I've tried that as well. The Mime-Version gets appended
automatically. Even doing an uuencode and sending the resultant file
doesn't have it as an attachment.

In any case, it's solved using
mail -a "Content-Type: text/html"

Okay.. for some reason, FC3's version of mailx (8.1.33) does not have
the "-a" option to mail.

Any other ideas?

You can format the entire mail message yourself, and pipe it to sendmail. That's all that mailx, itself, does anyway.

Consider this as an opportunity for you to learn about proper E-mail formats.
