I'm validating some stuff, and I just got:

  Tip Of The Day: GIF or PNG

  2006/11/24 01:20:24

Er... tips should be sentences of the form "do something", no?

so perhaps:

 Tip of the Day: Choose graphics formats (GIF or PNG) carefully

or better:

 Tip of the Day: Consider PNG instead of GIF for images

I'm a bit surprised to see "GIF's strong point is that it is very widely
supported and thus well established as the default choice for simple
graphics on the Web."

But that's consistent with the current Mobile Web Best Practices 1.0
Proposed Recommendation:

"Image Format Support
        GIF 89a."
