Tricky -- i'm not actually sure what image formats are supported by
CG, and i know less about what image formats are supported by the
GTK, QT, and WX versions of webkit.
If you look at the arrays defined for supportedImageMIMETypes (see
MIMETypeRegistry.cpp) we assume that all implementations support:
"image/x-icon", // ico
"image/x-xbitmap" // xbm
This only really applies to a standalone image -- eg. a person
navigating directly to an image.
<img> tags just pass the raw data directly to the image library,
regardless of mimetype so it's possible that more image types may be
supported through <img> tags than as standalone pages.
