              <h1>IMAGE as Html element & Css selector</h1>
<p>If you type &lt;image> as tags for images elements in the html, browser aliases 'image' to 'img'.</p>
<p>Please, read the article <a href='http://jakearchibald.com/2013/having-fun-with-image/'><strong>"Having fun with &lt;image>"</strong></a> by @jaffathecake [ing].</p>

<p class='question'>But What if we use 'image' as css selector?</p>
<p>Please, read the article <a href='http://ksesocss.blogspot.com/2013/08/image-selector-css.html'><strong>"Más diversión con el selector image en Css"</strong></a> [es] and open this pen with Internet Explorer (7, 8 or 9 /¿10?)</p>
<article>
<h2>IMAGE as Css selector & IE´s</h2>
<div class='css-in-html'>
  <h3>This is a &lt;IMG> element</h2>
  <img src='http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zGyzffKV9d4/UZKsyak0pJI/AAAAAAAAGpo/Sxb6jt70G5E/s1600/nueva-piel.jpg' alt='' />
  </div>
<div class='css-in-html'>
  <h3>This is a &lt;IMAGE> element</h2>
  <image src='http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-zGyzffKV9d4/UZKsyak0pJI/AAAAAAAAGpo/Sxb6jt70G5E/s1600/nueva-piel.jpg' alt='' />
</div>
<p>The same applies if the styles are in an external CSS file or included in the head of html</p>
  </article>
<p>The IEs alias the 'image' selector to 'img' (in the css rules) and then they apply the styles declared for 'image' to all 'img' of the html document.</p>
