Images in Web Browsers?

I stumbled across a post from Marc Andreessen (later co-founder of Netscape) from February 1993 in which he proposes a new HTML tag… to display images (images were not in the original HTML specification).

The subsequent discussion is even more interesting. Tim Berners-Lee (inventor of the Web) is not so keen. But it looks like Andreessen won that round.
