Dear Sirs and Madams,

I just have a question: an external sponsor directed me to add the following line of code to my schools' homepage:

<img src="something.swf" ...>

I am sure it is not allowed to use "swf" as image sources for the image tag.

Could you please send me a link to the corresponding part of the standard where this issue is referred to? I could not find it, neither through google nor through your site.

Yours sincerely,
Christian Schoebel.
