Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: kopete

When the user archives a Kopete chat via Chat - Save, it generates an
HTML file that repeatedly includes the same user icon images encoded
inline for every message, causing the file size to be very large, for

        <div class="IncomingBody">
                <div class="IncomingBody1">
                        <div class="IncomingBody2">
                                <div class="inUserPicture">
                                <img width="46" height="46" src="data:image/png;base64,iVBORw0KGgoAAAANSUhEUgAAAGQAAABkCAIAAAD/gAIDAAAgAElEQVR4nLy8WZMl15Em5stZIu...

The binary is one of two small icons that occurs before every message
and adds about 21 Kb to the archive for each message.  The file size can
grow large, for example 6 Mb for a 1.5 hour chat.

These images could be stored much more efficiently using stylesheets, as
is already used for some other images shown on the same page.
