Fullsize – A New IMG Tag Attribute next version of HTML


The Full-size – A new IMG Tag Attribute next version of HTML from addfullsize.  Fullsize is an attempt to get a new <IMG> attribute called fullsize into the next version of HTML.

Hopefully, this site will get the attention of the W3C, and they will add fullsize to HTML and make it a standard. This is an attempt to bring something truly useful to all web developers and is by no means a completely polished idea, but rather a step in the right direction.

Please visit the Fullsize Google Group to add your thoughts on how you think this idea can be improved upon. There are MANY fantastic javascript/AJAX solutions out there to view a larger version of an image by displaying it as an in-page pop-up or lightbox pop-up.

So many solutions in fact that it is rare to visit a website with a photo gallery that does not already utilize one of these solutions. So why not make it a standard? Why not let the browsers take care of the heavy lifting rather than us web developers via javascript?

I propose adding an fullsize attribute to the <IMG> tag. By which you can reference a larger (or full size) version of the SRC image. Browsers could then include native support to display the fullsize image in a pop-up.
