You probably can. Almost every web browser supports PNG.

I've uploaded it to my Hia qi Mau Online. Well, I'll soon start that LW site. Probably right after I got to my own computer (from monday to friday afternoon I'm in the college and everybody gets upset if I start with something that takes up more time than 10 min :) And you'll see what I'm talking about and please give me your impressions about the language and the script too. My Hia qi Mau Online will also receive an English version when I get a lil' time. so here's the URL of the pic: Orthography transscription (from left to right): {heq}[i][de] [ta] uqb'[n] (qi) hen[i][de] [ta] uia[n] Heqide ta uquban qi henide ta wiyan. "I'd eaten the corn (bread) and I'd drunk the water." and the word [long][noy][ad] -- longonoyad = "language-created" = 'conlang' is here: [] -- ideogram or syllabe sign used as ideogram () -- ideogram-ish word written with alphabetic signs. {} -- syllabe sign ' -- skipping indicator They can skip vowels: if you write down a vowel (or a syllabe sign) and the next vowel also has the same frontness you needn't write down the following vowel. And until the following vowel hasn't the same roundedness, you skip all the vowels. Even between words. But when you skip the first or last vowel of a word you should indicate it with a skipping indicator.
