I have a hard time with it too.  I tried viewing .png's created by Gimp
yesterday via Communicator 4.7 and it claimed that it didn't know what
to do with them.  What's the story here?  I thought Communicator supported
them.  Is something wrong with my setup?

Anyway, as long as my web browser won't read .png's, I'm reluctant to nuke
my remaining .gif's.
