Re: HTML 3.2: PRE should not exclude IMG

I use IMG inside of PRE on my "Directory of Files" page. It works
perfectly, though I use it in a "relatively safe" way, I think. :)

The algorithm Netscape uses is pretty simple:

 |:::| s--o--m--e--   t--e--x--t--
 a--n--d--   m--o--r--e--

The image is 1.5 characters wide, so the following text begins at the next
"whole" character position. With a monospace font, the relationship between
characters and pixels is a very short arithmetic formula, so laying this
out is child's play for the browser.
