Yes, foo.jpg.html does look ugly.  That's why I just suggested
foo.html.

I'm not sure it does.  How is using _thumbnail different than using
.cache?

I don't get what I'm looking for.  All your urls are exactly like
mine.  You won't be able to submit
http://gallery.donarmstrong.com/digital_art/AlluviumB.jpg to any
forums or allow google indexing of this page.  That AlluviumB.jpg page
is the page I'm proposing the URL for.  I'm not talking about any of
the thumbnails.  It's the image display _page_ I'm talking about.
