Chapter 5. Advanced Graphics > Graphic Storage Formats

Graphic Storage Formats

Technically, Web graphics can be stored in any format, but only two formats display inline on all of today's popular graphical browsers: GIF and JPEG. A third format, PNG, is gaining ground, and you should expect to see full inline support for PNG graphics soon. Other graphics formats have to be displayed by a helper application, which is launched by the browser when it detects a format it can't display.

Note

Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 supports the inline display of Windows Bitmap (.BMP) graphics in addition to GIFs and JPEGs.
