What are the basic requirements of Notes R 5.0.8 support of the importing of PNG files into document

Does Lotus Notes R 5.0.8 support the import of PNG files into documents? If so, what are the basic requirements? Are any import routines available for the PNG files?
Well, this was new to me, so I had to look it up. There is a good introduction to PNG files, for those (like me) who need it. I also found a good FAQ about PNG.

Basically PNG is an alternative image format for Web pages, like GIF or TIFF. It sounds like your question is whether the Notes client software will correctly display a PNG image from a Notes document. The answer appears to be "no." Here is a quote fromj someone who should know on Notes.net.

No, Notes doesn't speak PNG. You can attach it or paste it as pixels, or convert to JPEG/GIF/TIFF/BMP before importing, but you can't import a PNG directly.
