Hmm.  That's what I had pnmcrop do.  When I inline an image it moves
around depending on whether there is plain old text above and or below
it.  I can't see the benefit.

But then, I was viewing the file with a non-css aware browser. with a
newer one it seems to stay at the same level even when there's text
below it /or/ above. ok, makes sense.

There was a time

And I could have the faintest idea
