Well, I'm going to jump in here and answer based on a technicality: You can _post_ all the articles with pictures you want. You just can't view them easily.
I know, I know, that's not what you meant, but it gives me a good transition into my next point. Evelyn Sander has been and will continue to post articles that have associated figures. These figures are available in the directory /pictures/articles. They are in postscript form, so theoretically anyone can read them, regardless of platform. If anyone has an article that they would like to post that includes figures, mail me the pictures and the title of your article, and I'll put them in that directory under an appropriate name. We can also archive a postscript version of your entire article if you'd like people to have access to that as well. Raw postscript is best, though other options might include TeX, or platform-specific formats. > >Has there been any progress? Is anyone actually still working >on this?
See the post from Asa Packer that addresses this part of your question.
