I know that. I would NEVER put a BMP on the web (unless it's zipped).

But the problem is this: when i try to open a BMP file locally, Netscape launches MS paint. I have collections of BMP files in my machine - i'm working on an image compression algorithm and i need uncompressed files available.

At least they could add a plugin for BMP. Some people out there use Netscape not just for web browsing - Netscape (or any browser for that matter) is so versatile that i use it to maintain my directories and files.
