A Fractal Gingerbreadman

If your browser supported Java, You would see a nice fractal here.

This is a fractal gingerbreadman. It is also an orbital type of fractal, but unlike popcorn, the orbital formula is only applied to one starting point to create the image. This formula is:

xn + 1 = 1 - yn + |xn|
yn + 1 = xn

This fractal uses x0 = -0.1 and y0 = 0. These values can be changed by setting the parameters xstart and ystart in <param> tags, although these don't change the image much, and sometimes make it less interesting.
