Hello Kurt and all:

  The following is from deep down in the text formatting guidelines for
wikis. In your data model case, you've got to find someway to extract your
graphic out of MSWord and then arrange to have the file put up somewhere on
the Source Forge URL so it can be called into the wiki server. You might
want to copy your original file to another name, strip off the text and then
try the, "Save As HTML," command from MSWord. This routine will generate
at least two files including one with a .htm suffix and another as probably
a .gif suffix. I'm sorry I didn't think about this earlier but I had
certain time constraints that day and now I'm at home and the file is at
work. I'm sure there is some wonderful way to do this with open source
software but, better the devil I know.

Thanks, Ed Kennedy

Just provide the URL, and the image will be inserted inline.

These extensions are recognized: gif, jpg, png, bmp, jpeg

If you have a choice, results are usually best with png for computer
generated images, and JPEG for photographic images.

the proper OVC disclaimers could go into each document that is posted, or
are they necessary as the WEB site has a PD disclosure?
