      Another thing I didn't notice in the ad for Netscape 4.0 was support 
   for in-line PNG graphics files!
      I know that someone from Netscape reads this mailing list--so I ask
   you: what does Netscape have against the new PNG file format? Why are you
   so reluctant to support native in-line PNG files the same way you support
   GIF and JPG? 

Best reason I know: there's no money in it in the short term.
