fullsize attribute to the
<IMG> tag. By which you can references a larger (or fullsize) version of the
SRC image. Browsers could then include native support to display the
fullsize image in a pop-up. You can vote for Fullsize and add your name to the list of those who support this Fullsize idea.
Even though Fullsize is not currently in the next HTML spec yet, you can still get Fullsize jQuery plugin now. Since there is no
fullsize attribute for the
<IMG> tag yet, he is using the
longdesc attribute instead.
longdesc is a completely valid image attribute and is meant to contain a URL to a description of the image. The Fullsize jQuery plug-in is super easy to use, and provides a kick start to standardizing the way image pop-ups look and work.
