[standards-jig] Web display of presence

Two things I've suggested before but I need again.

1) Some simple way of showing presence information on a website. This 
would typically be a small two-state icon that reflects your current 
presence. It would be coded in html something like
<img src="http://myjabberserver/presence/myjid/small.gif">
I guess this would either need to be added into the status.webhop.net 
presence code or some standard extension to jabberd. I've suggested this 
to the status.webhop.net but I didn't manage to convince him to do it.

2) A standard way to code a URL link in a web page, that means "start a 
chat session with this jid". Perhaps <a 
href="im://jabber/startchat/myjid"></a> This would of course require 
some help from the browser.

Right now I need a baby gif of about 15*15 to represent a Jabber JID I'm 
sure there's a little light bulb somewhere but I haven't been able to 
find one. Can anyone point me at one?

To see examples of something similar to this, take a look at 
http://www.ecademy.com I've implemented this for all the other IM 
systems (although they don't all show live presence) but I'm stuck on
