I'd vote for only having the W3C logos in only png format, where alpha
blending can take care of that whole transparency thing. Forget gifs,
their limitations and patent problems, and forget beating the dead
horse that is content ('I noticed that you were missing the file
extension and I thought I had better point it out') negotation while
we're at it.
