I think that you should check whether your browser supports the data: URL
scheme.  If it does, use that.  It will be fat, of course, but this is the
preferred way to do what you seem to be doing.  Whether anyone supports it
is anyone's guess.  I'd try it, but I'd have to find the spec, encode an
image, and build a page to test, and, well ... you have a little more reason
to investigate, right?  *laugh*
