I'm sorry for the inconsistent mail. It seems the original has been truncated (I
also received an odd mail from Central Postmaster). In fact the full message
was:

Hi there,

I've a little problem trying to insert an image as FIG. I read somewhere that
FIG should be used in case of large images, instead of IMG. 
I tried the following:

<IMG SRC="img.gif" LOWSRC="img_low.gif" ALT="An image">
<FIG SRC="img.gif" LOWSRC="img_low.gif" ALT="An image">

The result for the first line is that the image is correctly displayed. The
second line doesn't display anything: simply ignored line.

Am I missing something here? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Valerio
