BMP's should NEVER be used on the web. 90% of the time they are uncompressed which means that they will take forever to download. Gif/Jpg/Png (To replace gif) is all you should ever need. When you put images on the web they should be as small as you can possibly make them. It takes on avg. 1 minute to download 100k on my 33.6.

[For people who say but most people are on cable/dsl now... I am on ADSL and I still want it as fast as possible. Just because I have more bandwidth, doesn't mean I want it to take the same amount of time to download.]
