Ok. Thanks for pointing that out. Glad it is not entirely forgotten.

One little nit:
”Other features required to make embedded graphics work well include the ability of images to scale with font size”

That sounds a little bit like one was requiring a small revolution in image rendering. But of course it is not (ok, HTML again):

     <img src="………" alt="……" style="width:1em;height:1em;"/>

(1em being the typical height and width of emoji glyphs.)
