Attribute for <IMG ...>

Usage Recommendation
don't use it thumbs down

CONTROLS, puts a set of controls below the movie so that the user has control over when the movie is played. Every browser has a different set of controls, but all browsers that play movies least have a little button which indicates "play" to play the movie.

This code

CONTROLS ALT="Astronauts on the moon">

produces this movie:

Astronauts on the moon

Unfortunately, CONTROLS seems to have disappeared from MSIE version 4. If you use the HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes, your movie will always have the proportions wrong in either MSIE 3 or MSIE 4, so it's probably best to leave CONTROLS out.
