I just had a quick look at these images, and there is one small problem
with their appearance in certain situations. These are black-on-white
drawings, but it appears that the background color has been set to black.
In current versions of both Netscape and Internet Explorer browsers, pixels
in the background color are regarded as "transparent", and are displayed
using the browser's background color. If your browser's background color
happens to be set to white (as mine was), the image will be rendered with
white pixels against a white background - that is, they will be invisible!

So if your attempts to browse these images results in a blank window, do
not despair. Temporarily set your background color to something other than
white, and they should appear.

Meanwhile, I hope that Karl is made aware of the problem - it can be easily
corrected by setting the background color of the images to white.
