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"
note="Michael Arnold Mages wrote, 'I suppose I didn't
intend to create an exhaustive list of the
potentialities in my introduction, nor suggest that
journalism was the raison d'être for weblogging.'  See";

I'm thinking about more comments like this throughout
