Inserting an image into an (x)html document is a rather strait forward process. The tag you’ll need to accomplish is called the <img> tag. Like meta tags, <br />, and <hr /> the image tag is a self closing tag.
The following example will insert an image into your document
<img src="path" width="" height="" alt="" />
You can use the sample image located here for this example.
- src – points to the source file you wish to display. The src attribute will accept either a relative or absolute path to the file.
Note: it is considered bad form to link absolutely to an image on someone else’s server. This is known as hotlinking.
- width – not required
- height – not required
- alt – required – the is the text that will be read to an individual using assistive technologies to browse the page.
