5. Rules, Images, and Multimedia > Other Multimedia Content

Other Multimedia Content

The Web is completely open-minded about the types of content that can be exchanged by servers and browsers. In this section, we look at a different way to reference images, along with audio, video, and other document formats.

Embedded Versus Referenced Content

Images currently enjoy a special status among the various media that can be included within an HTML or XHTML document and displayed inline with other content by all but a few browsers. Sometimes, however, as we discussed earlier in this chapter, you may also reference images externally — particularly large ones in which details are important but not immediately necessary to the document content. Other multimedia elements, including digital audio and video, can be referenced as separate documents external to the current one.
