Skult,

As far as i know, HTML does not force you to quote attributes, though it's
good practice to do so. Current browsers do their best to interpret the
attributes you supply. This changes when working with XML and XHTML files.
Attributes *must* be quoted in these document types to get valid documents.

Betreff: HTML Document conventions.


I've browsed through the HTML Specs and couldn't find information regarding
the use of quotation marks (don't know if that's the right word, I mean: "")
when defining attributes for HTML tags.

Can anyone tell me whether there is any difference between

<img src="some_picture.png" width="10" height="10" alt="Some alternative
text"> and
<img src="some_picture.png" width=10 height=10 alt="Some alternative text">.
Or may I even write
<img src='some_picture.png' width='10' height='10' alt='Some alternative
text'>

(I've never tried the last one, though)...

Thanks in advance,
--- Skult
