At the risk of sounding like a reject, I must say that I  am bothered by the 
dimensions and file name choice of the  bottom picture on this page: 
(http://www.w3.org/Graphics/PNG/Inline-img.html) .
Yea, yea I know it is only a number. I have been through this many, many  
times before (*See below). However since some religious people have accepted it  
as a sign of evil, I would rather not be a part of this fray. It is not my  
desire to be very bothered by this image's name assignment or the  particular 
events in Revelation.
Isn't the W3C concerned about bandwidth costs here? Couldn't  that image have 
been smaller? How about a  3 by 3 by 3 or a 4 by 4 by  4?

_This_ (http://www.w3.org/Graphics/PNG/)  site was where I first  took a 
major step to investigating this then-new-to-me file type called  PNG. PNG has 
plenty of advantages over some over other picture  formats, but I would rather 
stick with creating other picture  formats than to suffer distress from being 
reminded of  the evil in Revelation and the picture's name/dimensions at the  
bottom of _http://www.w3.org/Graphics/PNG/Inline-img.html_ 
(http://www.w3.org/Graphics/PNG/Inline-img.html) .
It is sort like this: If that part of the book of  Revelation was never 
written, would people still have invented or  accepted that number as a symbol of 
evil for use now and possibly in the  future?
*Long, long time ago, that number was not considered as an evil thing.  
Neither was it assigned with evil because there was no evil in  existence to assign 
the number with.
Would you think that if a person doesn't give Evil an inch of freedom,  Evil 
would not be able to take for a mile the freedom which it  does not have?
Frankly, such symbol might have been any number or combination of numbers  as 
a symbol of evil. It could have been something totally  different.]
