The img tag is used to place an image in the text flow.
The monochrome .wbmp (wireless bitmap) format is used to code images for wireless display.
There are programs that can convert .bmp, .gif, and .jpg files into .wbmp format.
Many browsers impose an upper size limit on the image
(for example, 44 pixels high by 96 pixels wide).
Images can be used as hyperlinks and appear in tables.
The img element can be contained in the following elements:
a, anchor, b, big, em, fieldset, i, p, small, strong, td, and u.
This is a self-closing tag.
Nested Tags: None
The optional align attribute sets the image alignment with regard to the baseline
of the text.
The only permitted values are bottom, middle, and top.
The mandatory alt attribute is an alternative string or text to be displayed if the image
cannot be displayed.
The optional class core attribute is used to assign one or more classes to the element.
Multiple classes are separated by white space.
The class name is case sensitive (i.e., Stocks and stocks are not the same).
The optional height attribute sets the display height of the image.
It is expressed as an integer percentage of the available vertical display
The optional hspace attribute sets the amount of white space to
be inserted on both the right and left side of the image. It is expressed
as an integer percentage of the available horizontal display space.
The optional id core attribute is used to assign a unique name to a tag.
The name must be unique to the entire deck and not just unique to a card.
The first character of the name can be a letter or the underscore.
The remaining characters can be any combination of letters, numbers, or underscores.
The optional localsrc attribute is a string that specifies an alternative internal
substitution for the image.
If present, this attribute takes precedence over the src attribute.
The mandatory src attribute is the URL address of the image.
It must be in a .wbmp image file format.
The URL usually cannot exceed 255 characters in length.
The optional vspace attribute sets the amount of white space to
be inserted both above and below the image. It is expressed as an integer
percentage of the available vertical display space.
The optional width attribute sets the display width of the image.
It is expressed as an integer percentage of the available horizontal display
The optional xml:lang attribute sets the language used in the element, such as English or Greek.
For example, in the U.S. the default value is en-US.
