[webkit-dev] Adding -webkit-image-set CSS function

Hi all!

Ted O'Connor recently proposed a new CSS function for the Images module to the CSS working group called image-set. The idea behind the feature is to allow authors to provide multiple variants of the same image at differing resolutions, and to allow the User Agent to choose the resource that is most appropriate at the time. We think this will be a great way to allow authors to specify high resolution resources for iPhone's retina display, and we imagine User Agents being able to choose different resolution resources when content is scaled or zoomed. There is some consensus on the list that a feature like this would be a good addition to CSS Images Level 4. Discussion is still ongoing about the exact syntax of the property, but we'd like to add an experimental implementation to WebKit; after all, such implementations often help guide features like this along.
