Good point.  Just an FYI, Netscape Composer actually puts the width and height
parameters into the tags automatically, and doesn't do *too much* HTML reformatting
(usually negligible), so an easy way to get these params in the <img> tags is just to
open in Composer and save.

BTW, in Netscape Mail, my messages are timestamped in GMT, even though my system
knows that I'm in EDT.  Any ideas on why?  It's the only app that gets this wrong.
(Well, the GMT time is right, so listing by date works properly because it corrects
for timezone, but it's supposed to give the EDT time.)
