An HTML image
is a table with single pixel cell
s that form a picture with their bgcolor
property. Although the images are not practical, it can still be fun to create one just for the sake of trying it out. Basically, you make a table with cell padding
, cell spacing
, and border
all equal to zero
, then give each cell a bgcolor attribute and fill in the appropriate value.
Potentially, someone could write a PERL script or C++ program that generated patterns for shading areas, similar to photoshop's fill tool. I never got beyond making a simple program that took command line input and used it to determine which of about 5 colors to display on the screen.
