The Huffington Post site has started playing an image game that is confusing OmniWeb 5.7 (but not Safari 3.1.1 or Firefox 2.0.0.14) -- many of the article thumbnails are blank. This started happening sometime today.

<img class="unloaded-image" longdesc="http://images.huffingtonpost.com/gen/22022/thumbs/r-PENTAGONHEADS-large.jpg" width="600" height="275" src="/images/trans.gif">

Note that the "src" image is a transparent GIF, while the actual image URL is specified with an unusual "longdesc" attribute. Hmmm. I wonder how this works.

When OmniWeb spoofs as Safari 3.0.4, the images appear. Hmmm, again.
