png2html 1.1 - Transforms a PNG image into a web page with the use of
               a text file.
               By Geoff Holden (holden@engr.mun.ca)

INTRODUCTION
------------

  Png2html takes a PNG image and transforms it pixel per pixel to a web
page. It makes use of a text file supplied by the user to do the conversion.
This program was inspired by http://rio.dhs.org/penguin.html and
http://www.embt.com/tom/FreeBSD/textlogo1.html

REQUIREMENTS
------------

  This program needs libpng and libgd properly installed on your system.
GD is availibe from http://www.boutell.com/gd/ and libpng is availible
from http://www.cdrom.com/pub/png/pngcode.html

NOTES
-----
  Setting the output file to be "-", will direct the output to stdout, as
setting the text file to "-" will cause the program to read from stdin.
  There is a limitation to the program, which is not fixed in an effort to
keep the code simple engough for a novice C programmer to read.
  * A letter is not square, but a pixel is. This means that your images
    will be taller than their originals, to combat this, you may wish to
    resize the original first.
