Multiple Author Weblogs Question

I'm trying to figure out how to script a way to have different avatars or little pictures show up on the main page of my blog. Example:

If I post Milo is next to my name.

If someone else posts maybe Opus would appear. Right now I have straight HTML on my end notes.

The script would select based on the author name of the poster. Anyone familiar with a plugin or coding that would do this?

Ask Pylorns. They do that over at Wetwired.

Pylorns uses Blogger. Just asked him. I was shocked cause his blog is one of the better looking ones.

The best way to do this is something similar to my category icons.

Let's say your authors are called Bip and Bop. Just upload two images, Bip.jpg and Bop.jpg, and in your template include the following:

<img src="<MTEntryAuthor>.jpg">

(Hope I got that right.)

You make this sound way too easy!
