Daniel that's right.
The %xp-tag has five additional parameters (compared too the %xl-/%x-tags)
with these additional parameters you define the id of the source-image ,
the position and size of the subimage in the source-image.

I have personaly a slightly modified version of the Simple-wps running.
And all used images are located in the 160x25 image which was the
background-image in the original wps. With this patch i only need a
562Byte big image-file.
Compared to the total size of the individual images (which is ca 1.6KB)
the needed size on the disk is decreased by ca.65%.

I don't say that all images must be combined in one image. But i think
it is at least for conditional-images, which have mostly the same
dimension, a good solution to reduce the amount of individual images for
each wps.
