        ART is like JPEG++.  It's a 24 bit scalably-lossy
compression algorithm.  It differs from JPEG in that it uses
different compression techniques and allows you to tag the
hotspots that you want to perform the least compression on
when you do the actual compression.  Supposedly Johnson-Grace
(now owned by AOL) is producing an ART plugin for Netscape
as well.
