Word Internet Assistant is just a front end for generating HTML. It has
nothing to do with graphics. Use any graphics application to create your art.
But, make sure that it has a .gif and/or .jpg export filter. You can then
import the graphic into the WIA document just as you would a normal Word doc.
The resulting html file should run on a UNIX server.

Internet Assistant is a good tool for starting out, but you will find that it
does not provide all of the HTML features you may need. (Such as background
color, blinking text, etc.) It's a good idea to learn HTML code as well.

Opinions expressed here probably differ from that of my
employer. If I ruffle your feathers, get mad at me - not Sony.
