Style attributes (style="") do not refer to a URI, though any valid CSS setting for that element which uses a URI may be used. In this case the STYLE attribute and tag are not different.

The SRC value of an IMG tag is not the issue, whatever type of image, the browser SHOULD only handle it as an image. Although certain plugins may have co-opted control of given MIME-types (eg. QuickTime and PNG), and be exploitable. What was likely referred to is touched upon in the JavaScript discussion I linked to, IMG tags (and so many others) are allowed event attributes such as ONLOAD which can execute inlined script.

The matter at hand is Cross Site Scripting, this is protecting the user from malicious foreign content. *Mis*configuration of a server to execute images on the server is irrelevant( The only likely means for this is to have the execution bit set on the file on a UN*X server and allow execution of either any file, or files by location. Files from a Samaba share typically appear to have the execution bit set. Again though, this affects the *server*.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
