            Bug ID: 20174
           Summary: Lacks way to support different image types
    Classification: Unclassified
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: The srcset attribute
          Assignee: eoconnor@apple.com
          Reporter: w3c@marcosc.com
        QA Contact: public-html-bugzilla@w3.org

The img@srcset spec currently lacks a way for alternative image formats to be
supported. This means that content negotiation must be done on the server,
which is known to be problematic ( see:
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-bugzilla/2011Nov/0309.html ).
Or it must be done on the client using a whole bunch of nasty hacks (e.g.,
downloading a 1x1 pixel image, seeing if it's supported, etc.).
