    Because bitmaps are acceptable web images? Why does it matter?

    I don't really want to get into the old browser argument, but Netscape 4.x does not support BMPs. Haven't tried with the 6.x though.

    I remember once I made my homepage a 700k gif image. After I realized what I had done, that image came flying off my site, lol.

    A few monthes ago when I was fooling around with psp.

    Now I'm considering making my sites mainly text-only because it really saves bandwidth (especially with mod_gzip installed) and it really emphisizes (sp?) the content. (Besides, I'm no graphic designer.)

    I see a big fat blank page in Netscape 6.

    Yeah seems only IE likes the BMP format.

    My Opera browser rendered the BMP -- after I hit "refresh" two times. Before that, it was a black pixelated glob. Now it's a dithered-to-death glob. Opera's weird, though, and I don't have the new beta.

    A 256 color .gif of that same graphic -- which looks nearly identical in resect to image quality -- is 44 K vs. 352 k. You can make a 64 color gif that looks good and is even smaller. Your users will thank you for the .gifs.

    WELL

    Geez, people, it was only up for a DAY- it's fixed now. Been fixed for a while. Much smaller sized graphics and all.
