Did you install the netpbm utilities ?
The symptom you describe is due to  pnmcrop  failing to work correctly,
to remove those 'cropping-bars' which are used to ensure that the
resulting image is cropped to the correct size.

How can this possibly be translated into HTML ?
To get proper vertical alignment, you *must* use a <TABLE> ;
then there is no use for the \dotfill as the material before/after the filler
would be in different cells.
