           Summary: After doing a bunch of reading, it appears to me that
                    the crossorigin attribute was added to help WebGL on
                    canvas.  As far as I can tell, it is irrelevant when
                    the img element is used in HTML (i.e., <img

Comment:
After doing a bunch of reading, it appears to me that the crossorigin
attribute was added to help WebGL on canvas.  As far as I can tell, it is
irrelevant when the img element is used in HTML (i.e., <img src="myPic.jpg">. 
If I am wrong, then could you please clarify how crossorigin is used in HTML? 
If I am right, then could you please clarify that this attribute is only
useful when using the canvas element.  If both of these are wrong, then plz
correctly my erroneous thinking.  :-)  Thank you.
