One small thing: Tools for PNG are somewhat lacking, last I checked. Of
course, I don't have the latest software...

But there have been occaisions when I tried to create an 8-bit image, and
compare file sizes between PNG and GIF. GIF was smaller, but I fear this is
largely due to poor implementation on the part of my graphics application,
JASC's Paint Shop Pro 5. (Yeah, I know, cheap rip-off of Adobe, but I think
Adobe's products are all waaaay overpriced anyway.)

Can anyone attest to a better implementation of PNG on other image editors?

Yeah, I know, this is pretty off-topic for the markup list... sorry.

I want to use the OBJECT element instead of the IMG element!
