        you can refer to images such as a gif or jpg file.

        interscript is 'typesetter independent': the documents
must be renderable in plain text, html, and latex2e, and any
other typesetter language such as postscript.

        So, if a client document contains information 
I pass to your package to draw a diagram, I have to be able
to 'paste' it into both Latex and HTML ... although plain text
is probably pushing it. 

        I need to do this automatically: I can always
run Xdvi and a screen grabber to make a jpg file for HTML,
but I don't know how to do it automatically without user 

        Another way to do it in HTML .. is to use a Java applet.
