You could also use the [image] tag...by default, it won't spit out
anything unless the image exists.

[either][image src="items/[item-code].jpg" border=0][or]<img
src="items/1sna.jpg" border=0>[/either]

The [either] tag can be kinda picky, though...don't have anything --
even whitespace -- but the [image] tag between [either] and [or], or
your default image probably won't ever display (as the first section
will never be blank).
