"src="sale.gif""

hi , 

i was confused why the browser loads a default image when the original image is
not found or  when the image takes more time to load , user has to wait till
the original image succeeds or fails . it looks not interactive , browser
behaves the same in HTML 5 world also.

my suggestion is if image tag has a default field to load the default image
until the original image is loaded or until the original is failed and even if
the original image is failed let the default image defined by the user is shown
instead of browser to show to default gif .   

<img default="default.jpg" src="acb.jpg alt="default">

Thanks
Mohan
