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 truely 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 a 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 a fullsize attribute to the <IMG> tag. By which you can references a larger (or fullsize) version of the SRC image. Browsers could then include native support to display the fullsize image in a pop-up. Check out the video at the bottom of the page for more details

Example of fullsize in action:

<img src="me.jpg" alt="Me" fullsize="me-big.jpg" />
