http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/Overview.html#plugins:

"The term plugin is used to mean any content handler for Web content types that
are either not supported by the user agent natively or that do not expose a
DOM, which supports rendering the content as part of the user agent's
interface."

Questions:

1) What is a "Web content type"?

2) What does "natively" mean?

3) "do not expose a DOM": that seems to make the content handler for JPGs a 
plugin, right?
