Embed image data in HTML

Discussion in 'HTML' started by Randy Charles Morin, May 23, 2006.

  1. I'm looking for suggestions on embedding image data in HTML documents.
    The solution has to work in IE7, so data schemes won't work. I'm sure
    more of the replies will mention it anyway, but please, I'm looking for
    other solutions.
    Thanks,

    Don't do that.

    Well, they were a questionable idea from the beginning.

    > I'm looking for other solutions.


    You should look for other problems. Clearly when you are in a dead end,
    where you have described a problem that has no solution, you should
    backtrack to the point where you formulated the problem.

    What was the original problem that made you think you want to embed image
    data in a data format for text?

    I could swear my shrink said this at some stage?

    Why are you asking? You'd be the one in the best position to know.

    I wasn't asking.

    A common mistake, to be misled by "?"s. We need webcam newsgroups
    where we can make er.. er... hand signals to each other...

    Your question mark says you were.

    No, we just need to have a clue about writing.

    Writing is not the only point here. There is a question about how
    you read even less than perfect earthly ways of expression.

    "...?" is not necessarily a normal question with a true or false
    answer nor one that requires or seeks an answer, even a vague
    one. Nor does the act of a person "asking" what might have
    transpired in private between that person and another mean that
    one or both of the is in the best position to judge.

    It was my point.

    That is true; some of them are rhetorical questions not normal
    questions. Yours was a declarative statement with a misapplied question
    mark.

    Whaatever that means, it wasn't what you did.

    You saying "we just need to have a clue about writing" is a funny
    way to make this point.

    So you say. But it is not true. And it shows you don't understand
    or really believe what I said and you claim to have meant. The
    question mark had a function. It may not have the function that
    you were taught at straight school but it had a meaning and a
    point that you should have been able to understand and
    appreciate: as a wondering by the writer, a question he or she is
    asking him or herself about whether or not his or her shrink did
    or did not say something of a certain kind...

    If you do not understand this, you cannot know what I did because
    context is important (as important as freedom - hi Luigi!) and
    everything you say suggests you have too wooden a view. Context
    is the life blood of everything. Wake up!

    As for what it means, it is relevant to explain this to you as
    you seem to take the opposite view "You should know" said you.
    The point is simple enough. Sometimes a person can forget or have
    good reason to forget things and is not in the best position to
    know. Someone who has been informed of this earlier might be in a
    better position to know.

    The question mark was misused.

    This is one of my pet peves of expression, like its cousin "up-talk", as
    in: "We went to the zoo? We saw some animals? I really liked the
    bears?"

    To the OP, think of an HTML document is not like a Word document where
    all sorts of media is all bundled up into one neat (but usually humongous
    package) but more like a script to a play. Your images are actors and the
    HTML document via links and the markup element directs where the images
    (actors) stand on stage. That is all. If you want a completely integrated
    unit like a Word document for online use, try PDF.

    You are just stonewalling and hanging on to your fixed position.
    It was not at all like these examples which shows you are just
    not thinking about it. That is the trouble with pet peeves.

    What was all this latter para about? What on earth has PDF and
    HTML and Word got to do with our little thread here... o gosh...
    yes... there was an original subject... now it is coming back to
    me... Herr Korpela said something, I said something, Blinky said
    something (really really really daft, then...o no... here we go

    Now Eliza... I mean Luigi...

    A slight chill goes thru my bones when I hear German. Don't ask.
    But, let me add, apart from those who beat you up, modern Germans
    are very nice. Swedes gave us some great films and Finland is
    where some historic chess was played so their languages are
    particularly agreeable to my ears...

    No, as usual I just didn't read your crap.

    My not having read your crap does not make your inappropriate question
    mark appropriate.

    Ah yes! The OP, remember another one trying to embed image data into a
    web page again... ;-) Just thought your needed to be knocked back on track!

    No, of course, you just read bits of it and do exactly as I have
    outlined, take things out of context.

    And repeating an unargued fixed position that takes nothing but a
    few old dusty school rules does not make you right.

    You can embed an image with this syntax:

    <IMG SRC="data:image/gif;base64,xxxxxx">

    where xxxxxx is the base64 encoded gif image file. For encoding your gif file, you can use the online encoder at h t t p : / / w w w . m o t o b i t . c o m / u t i l / b a s e 6 4 - d e c o d e r - e n c o d e r . a s p
