text/plain (15 lines)

A solution that no one has mentioned yet is to make a set of 128-odd
graphics, one for each character you plan to use, antialias them and reduce
to 8 colors (4 if they still look good), save as .gifs, and string them
together to make text (e.g. <IMG SRC="T.gif"><IMG SRC="e.gif"><IMG
SRC="s.gif"><IMG SRC="t.gif">). The images are downloaded only as needed,
and you can set a *lot* of text this way for no additional graphic load
beyond that. (Btw, this isn't my idea, but I forgot the URL where I saw it
