This is already in HTML 3.0 in the form of the FIG tag which is similar to the IMG tag but allows full HTML content, which is used when the graphic cannot be, for example: <FIG SRC="pictures"> <CAPTION>My House!</CAPTION> <PRE> ._. / \ / \ /-------\ | |_| | __ | | <A HREF="door.html">||</A> | </PRE> </FIG> In addition, the anchor in the example could use the SHAPE attribute to define a shaped anchor for when the graphic can be used. The shape would in this case be a rectangle corresponding to the door in the graphic image. It works quite nicely. Michael Johnson Relay Technology, Inc.
