Part III: Graphics > JPEG Format

Chapter 20. JPEG Format

JPEG (which stands for Joint Photographic Experts Group, the standards body that created it) is a compression algorithm used by files in the JFIF format, commonly referred to as "JPEG files." JPEGs use either the .jpg or .jpeg suffix.

Like any graphics file format in widespread use on the Web, JPEGs are platform-independent. In addition, JPEGs are fully supported for use as inline images in Versions 2.0 and higher of Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer, as well as in nearly all other current browsers.
