I don't know the law on this, but it seems wrong to link directly to the picture, and not the HTML page that contains the picture. It's not quite hijacking the content (where you embed the image in your page but it's served from someone else's site), but it's not quite the same as referencing their site, either. For what it's worth. ...mike At 12:59 PM 4/2/2002, you wrote: >A friend of mind has a portfolio site at jen-ross.tripod.com.
