in reply to Add "Image Miniatures" to your HTML

In case it's of historical interest/amusement, I generated the three HTML images in the node cited above from these ascii art images:

using cog's Acme::AsciiArt2HtmlTable module.

Actually, I originally had four, but my meditation mysteriously (to me) was not being displayed correctly. I was cursing and swearing at the time, thinking I'd made some HTML blunder, not appreciating there's a 64K size limit per node and that I had just exceeded that limit. When it finally dawned on me what was spoiling all my hard work, I reluctantly removed the lovely little orange HTML picture of pijll. :-)

At the time, I was not aware of any prior art in this area, other than cog's little module, so thanks to liverpole and the respondents for furthering my education in this area.

While creating these HTML images was fun at the time, I don't plan on repeating it any time soon owing to the bandwidth concerns raised by jdporter.
