I like paintings. I look at paintings a lot. I make
paintings. HTML drawings began as a substitute, but I
don't ultimately think that the materials and
experience of looking at paintings and digital images
don't in the end have a lot of common. For me the two
do share some subject matter, some general pictorial
approaches, but the end result is so different- I'm
happy to have both practices.

Funny you mention that. I'd played with that a little
in the past, but just recently, after discussing ideas
with a friend, began putting in, just as a little
beginning, a few invented table attributes (I removed
the opening and closing brackets; is this the kind of
thing you're referring to:
table border="0" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="0"
bgcolor="#FFFFFF" author="Chris Ashley" title="Asn
Exhaustive List of Possibilities" date="20050601"
size="540 x 784 pixels"

intend to create an exhaustive list of the
