    Image popup in Internet Explorer

    Some images in Internet Explorer, when you hover over them, have a popup in which you can choose to save the image, email it to someone else, etc. I was just wondering, for what images does this happen? Because it doesn't happen for all images.

    This isn't important or anything, I'm just wondering.

    After a little research, I found this Microsoft support entry which explains the reasons it might not show up:

    The image toolbar has been disabled.

    -or-
    The image size is less than 200 x 200 pixels.

    -or-
    The image is a background image.

    -or-
    The image is part of an image mapping (indicating some sort of menu). If the Web page author uses the attributes USEMAP or ISMAP within the image tag, the image toolbar does not appear.

    -or-
    The Web page author disables the Image Toolbar either through a meta tag (<META HTTP-EQUIV="imagetoolbar" CONTENT="no">) or by setting the attribute GALLERYIMG="no" to an IMG tag element.

    Wow, thanks! I guess this was the problem . . .
    The image size is less than 200 x 200 pixels.
    I suppose I could use the GALLERYIMG attribute if I really wanted a popup . . . but I don't care about it that much.

    I strongly insist that you shouldn't use GALLERYIMG, it's not a standard attribute for IMG (it's not a standard attribute for any tag) and just the same way that we preach every day to use "int main()", I advise you to code according to the HTML 4.01 specifications.

    Yeah, I know. Even Microsoft considers it obsolete. That's why I said "but I don't care about it that much."

    I actually follow HTML standards pretty well. I always use lowercase HTML tags, closing tags, etc. (In fact most of my HTML could probably be XHTML.)
