I believe the documentation page https://docs.python.org/3/library/email.examples.html contains a minor error:

href="http://www.yummly.com/recipe/Roasted-Asparagus-Epicurious-203718 ...should be followed by a closing double quote. This is a small detail but was enough to stop the code from working, so slowed me down a while. (This is a new area for me so I wanted to adopt the 'safe' approach of using the example as much as possible 'as is' before changing anything!)

I have made a PR, not sure whether it needs backporting?
