Hi all

This is probably OT, so I'll have to scratch my head for a tip.  I've 
got to prepare a seminar on "ontology: what is the essence of a 
website?" for an MA I'm studying.  In trying to define what constitutes 
a website (is it multiple pages?, must it use HTTP?, is it that users 
can link and move in a non-linear manner? is it the electronic delivery 
that defines it?), I'm trying to find an example/examples of websites 
that have been created using just images - the entire page, text and 
all, as an image.  I know that they're few and far between, but does can 
anyone help?

Oh - and did very early Web content using HTTP or do I remember reading 
somewhere that FTP was mainly used?
