This is the right to hear about new HTML tags, but <BLINK> will never
be among them :-)

Go off and read the HTML 2.0 draft for a full spec of HTML as it is
currently implemented. For blinking you have to go look at netscape's
web pages.

To have more than one line of text adjacent to an image requires a
browser capable of showing it. The magic words are
<IMG ALIGN=LEFT SRC=... ALT=...> where ALIGN can be LEFT or RIGHT

Currently I think only Arena and Netscape (probably Emacs as well).

These sorts of questions are best directed at the Usenet newsgroup
comp.infosystems.www.authoring.html or to the www-talk mailing list,
rather than this list, which is trying to nail down the last few
characters in the HTML 2.0 spec.
