One of the consequences of Mosaic's addition of images was a weakening of
the web concept.  In a pure web concept, img elements are really a special
type of link that the browser pre-fetches and displays in place of the link,
but visual browser tend to treat them as part of a compound document (they
are more in the PDF market than the hyperlinking market).  Front page
even uses the term web to mean a self contained compound document.
