Dear Sir,
            So far in the development of HTML, all graphics are inserted
in HTML documents through the <IMAGE> tag. This is fine for pictures, I
suppose but I note that for academic usage, most people only need to use
lines and boxes to draw out flowcharts and miscellaneous stuff. In
short, they only need simple graphics. Thus, my suggestion to the
committee of the developers of HTML is: Why don't you add a set of HTML
tags that will draw simple graphics in HTML documents? Or does this
exist already? In the event that you want to take up on my suggestion, I
suggest modelling the graphics tags after PostScript. Anyway, thanks for

Yours Sincerely,
