The OP indicated that NetSurf was being used, therefore presumably
Exactly so. My comment was neither a bug report nor 'arm wavy', just
noting a characteristic/behaviour of netSurf.
I very much appreciate there are limited resources available for NetSurf
development, but I am really not in any position to judge whether
rendering a BMP file, or not, is of any real significance, thus my
I am just glad that development seems to be going so well as it is, IMHO.
Could it be a .bmp format not currently understood by NetSurf?
That's what I assumed.
I say this because NS seems quite tolerant to corruption! If you take
.bmp file and delete a chunk in !Edit (or similar) you will see that
although corrupted, the file will often display in NetSurf when other
programs can complain that the file is corrupt.
