Actually, it's <INPUT TYPE=jot> that's supported.  The only documentation
we appear to have on this is in libhtmlw/inkstore.h and libhtmlw/HTMLjot.c 
in the X/Mosaic source tree.  One other attribute that the jot type accepts
is SIZE="xsize, ysize" -- the default is 200x50.  The data sent is in 
version 1.0 of the "Jot Specification".

This feature does still exist (and appears to work -- at least as far as
sending the data) in 2.7b2.
