We need an HTML tag that displays the correct application icon GIF based on the user’s system settings.
Say I have a file library online. I have links to files with little icon pictures next to them based on the file type. I need a tag like this:
When a browser encountered this tag, it would query the system to find out what application is associated with .doc files, and display that icon in the Web page, pulled from the user’s system. So if my user uses WordPerfect on a Mac, or OpenOffice on Linux, they don’t see the Microsoft Word icon next to the file name.
Just a thought. I suppose there are much bigger dragons to slay in the world…
