Putting icons on a map ?
You don't need a grid for that. You can position the icons anywhere...
Now I really feel like an idiot -- this is all I wanted to do from the beginning -- put icons on a map -- and I didn't know I could do this without resorting to thousands of place holders just to position not more than a hundred icons. What would an image tag look look like if I wanted an imge to be placed at say 218 pixels from the left of a table window and 120 pixels from the top of it? Wouldn't it look something like:
<img src="red_dot.png" pos="218,120">
...but exactly how would it be written because pos="218,120" is just something I made up.
Also, I was wondering how a browser reacts when you inadvertantly position two images to occupy the exact same place or partially overlap. Since images are INLINE they can not overlap. I don't have a need for any to overlap -- I was just wondering what would alert me to it if I happen to mistakenly do this. My guess is that if they overlap by any amount the image that is referenced further in the code (after the first one) just won't be rendered at all.
