OK, so you found it and yes you are right -- we were wrong. Is that what you wanted to hear? Although it might not occupy space on our server, it does involve unnecessary overhead with increased bandwidth on the net and work for your browser. What happenss if that file is removed from the server for which we have no control over? What happens if that server goes off line, or if there are router problems? The receiving browser could hang while waiting for lookup info. Any number of things could happen, and in this case, that graphic did not add to anything pertinent to this board.
But the real question is why you would bring this up fifteen months later and why you wouldn't be specific as to the date of the message when we asked. Maybe it's your WebTV.
