To minimize access time and to ensure cross-platform compatibility, most inline images are 8 bit, system palette, interlaced GIF files.
Command line/shell account users, please note: these web pages have been designed for use with a graphical interface browser. Depending on the terminal emulation and character sets you are using, you probably will experience some difficulty displaying foreign language texts and page formatting may be inconsistent. For best results, these files should be read offline. Once the web site is established, we hope to make ASCII and Acrobat versions of many of these texts available via FTP: our address is sunsite.unc.edu/pub/academic/art/national-gallery.
