   Perhaps the idea is to let the applet generate pre-formatted text (which
   an IMG, of course, wouldn't)?

Good point...has anyone seen this done. And would the same apply to
EMBED and/or OBJECT?

I can see an argument for IMG of very tiny GIFs for obscure glyphs
which don't exist in the fixed-width fonts commonly used.
