no problem, it's also might be worth mentioning (this is SW issue)  
that any mechanical search engine might have more than necessary  
difficulty in categorising these files.
they don't appear to be linked from anywhere, have no alt text, and  
no internal description.
It's perhaps a little difficult to imagine a worse scenario, no doubt  
it will arise some time...
