OK. But an html message or web page shouldn't contain BMP images.
On what basis shouldn't it, please? It's the first time I've seen a BMP
file employed in this way. If this is likely to become a more common
procedure then surely NetSurf developers would wish to know, yes?
I expect that Internet Explorer might open them, but then it'll
URLs containing backslashes. So the problem lies with whatever lump of
shit (Outlook Express?) sent the message. I'm not surprised that
NetSurf barfed at it.
Your correspondent could do with a little education too.
Not my problem. It was commercial, thus drawing my attention to the event.
