Looks good to me.  I went in and made a few little editorial changes.

Looks good to me, Rob.

A technical note:  rather than providing a separate link to the larger images, why not hotlink the URL like this:

<a href="http://www.skepticalscience.com/pics/gistempsstanomaly.gif"><img width="450" src="http://www.skepticalscience.com/pics/gistempsstanomaly.gif"></a>

The first part of the html tag refers to the graphic in its actual size, 674 pixels wide.  The second part scales the graphic to any specified width (the height is constrained to retain its original propportion to its width).  For thumbnails, I usually use 125-150 pixels for the width.  Then when someone clicks on the thumbnail, the full-sized graphic is brought up.

You will need to save it twice for the WYSIWYG editor to convert the typed html tag in the editing window to WYSIWYG format.

Dunno why that is.  But it works.

Just found an easier way in the WYSIWYG editor window:

  1. Create the graphic with the insert/edit image tool with the desired smaller size
  2. Using the insert/edit link tool, link the same graphic or picture just created with the hosting URL that has it at the full size.

Waaaay quicker that way.
