That is tricky, since the nature of HTML assumes that the source for an IMG tag is a wholly separate URI, and not inline.

A data uri could be used to display an inline image created on the fly. It would look something like this:

<img src="data:image/jpeg;base64,11111111111111111111111111" />
where the 1's represent the base64 encoded bytes. Mozilla supports it but does the eighty ton gorilla? It looks like it might not.

    I didn't mention it because I wasn't sure how well-supported it was. I do that in GreaseMonkey scripts, to embed icons within the script, but then I know in those cases that I'm in a Firefox/Mozilla environment.

    I stand by my opinion that having the script do double-duty (return HTML or image data based on parameters in the query) is probably going to yield the cleanest, most-maintainable result.
