We can also use XML for its original purpose -- a markup language.  Even
just adding an emphasis tag can allow tip writers to be <em>much</em> more

But I was thinking of adding the ability to have small graphics in the tip
of the day.  Am I the only one that finds it odd that GIMP is an <em>image
manipulation</em> program, yet the tips are all in text?  Even the
database visualization app I worked on over the summer could embed small
graphics in the tip of the day, although in that app it was used mostly to
display which button does which thing.

I think that small graphics could be used to great effects -- to make your
graphic look like <graphic>, use the bumpmap plugin.  OK, it would take a
little more text than that to make it work well, but you get the idea.
