Subject: <a href=URL type=MIME> element?


A suggestion for the HTML 4.0 DTD: add the TYPE attribute to the 
anchor (A) element, so that one can use

  <A HREF="mypic.jpg" TYPE="image/jpeg">my picture</A>

So that User Agents can be 'warned' of what type of file to expect (I 
would even say how to treat the file, but that might be another 
attribute).
