I don’t see how this has anything to do with which file formats the 
browser supports. What if the images load slowly, or not at all because 
the link is broken or the server is in 'slashdot-mode' and only serving 
text and xml, or if the visitor has disabled images. This is not a 
general solution for all those things.
