ummm.....include screenshots in a txt file? you can't do that. nope, no sir-ry, you just can't. :-)

Well, if you have to include screen shots, I'd say the easiest thing to do would be to just make a quick html page. Maybe make a two-column table with the screenshot in column 1 and the description in column 2. That would not only keep your file size down, but would also give you a chance to format the content and provide some navigation.
