Sources for Backgrounds, Clip Art, Animated Gifs
and HTML, Java, Tables, and Frames Help

This list was begun to give credit to the sites from which I have obtained images.
Hope I've included them all. But, now I have added a lot more links where you can
get freebies for your web pages. If you check out one of these sites, be sure to use
your back button on the Netscape menu bar, to come back to this list or my home page.
Wherever I could I have done some categorizing of the sites, however, it has been hard
for me to separate many of them into specific categories, because so many of them contain
so much different information.
