An image coded as below::
The <img> tag embeds an image in an HTML page.
Note: images are not technically inserted into an HTML page, images are linked to HTML pages. The
<img> tag creates a holding space for the referenced image.
The <img> tag has two required attributes: src and alt.
The <img> tag is supported in all major browsers.
In HTML the <img> tag has no end tag.
In XHTML the <img> tag must be properly closed.
Hint: The alt attribute is meant to be used as an alternative text if the image is not
available, not as a mouse-over text. To show a mouse-over text on images or image-maps, use the
title attribute, like this: <img src="../../images/image9.png" alt="Its An
Image" title="Its An Image" />
Note: When a web page is loaded, it is the browser, at that moment, that actually gets the
image from a web server and inserts it into the page. Therefore, make sure that the images
actually stay in the same spot in relation to the web page, otherwise your visitors will get a
broken link icon. The broken link icon is shown if the browser cannot find the image.
DTD indicates in which HTML 4.01/XHTML 1.0 DTD the
attribute is allowed. S=Strict, T=Transitional, and F=Frameset.
