It was a poorly chosen analogy.  Sorry for the confusion.  (Although there 
were people still debating the merits of inline images 2 years ago or so, it 
was definitely a minority opinion.)


For the record, I came aboard www-talk around the time CGI was developing, 
which _did_ make a major impact in what Web applications could be created. 
 And CGI itself was created not _that_ long ago.  Now we have Java and 
Javascript all over the place; from ISINDEX to Java is a fair bit of 
evolution in a short time.
