Also kinda like XBM, a file format that was happily supported in the browser - and you could create the images in JavaScript! http://www.mrspeaker.net/2005/03/27/xmb-images/ - unfortunately, IE was first to discontinue it in 2006 (http://www.mrspeaker.net/2006/09/04/the-end-of-xbm/), and Firefox followed. My guess is it was too obvious of a security hole vector for an image format that no one actually used ;)
