There was a discussion on graphics in template some months ago - I do not 
have access to a local archive.  The discussion may have pre-dated the 
establishment of either of the two online archive and possibly even the 
Techserv email based archive (established about a year ago). The two 
on-line archives are:
1) and then search for Protel and find the archive group.
2)  search for 

(Leave now if you don't want to hear me bitching ... Rant mode on: Some 
history on the mail-archive site, when Techserv was being very slow in 
creating an online archive even though it was promised for ages, Abd 
ul-Rahman Lomax and I independently (but at about the same time) went about 
setting out an independent www-accessible archive of the PEDA list.  He 
went to yahoo, I went to mail-archive.  I was successful in registering the 
mail-archive as a user on the PEDA list but it was a little messy.  A short 
time later the subscription was terminated (not by me and not by 
mail-archive).  And then later still it was re-created.  One assumes by 
Techserv.  No comments to me even though in the past I had sent Techserv 
details on using the mail-archive site and suggesting it would be 
appropriate (and received a reply that they don't need it as their own www 
archive would be up and running soon - which it was not). There was not 
even an announcment on the PEDA list that the archive existed. This sort of 
behavior pisses me off no end - not much of a team attitude here.  Rant 
mode off.  Before people start at me about the wonderful service that 
Techserv provide - yes I do think it is a great service. )
