do you mean something like this:
i read about the images on this page quite a long time ago.
unfortunately, i am not able to find the info again to check my memory.
but i think the on demand images on this page were not rendered with
gimp. the page is very very informative, yet i was not able to access
it with lynx.
with a graphical browser, the images are very cool though.
it is prolly off topic by now, but i wonder about the differences
between these images and the usual ones found on web pages. what would
be the advantage of this sort of rendering?
