Display TIFF image in all web browser

How to handle TIFF file in HTML pages?

I want to display a TIFF file in my HTML page.

I have tried using embedded tag, object id, img, etc. But I am unable to display the image (TIFF) in the HTML page.

I am not using Java, .NET or any other thing in my project. I am using HTML only.

Answer

This comes down to browser image support; it looks like the only mainstream browser that supports tiff is Safari:

Where are you getting the tiff images from? Is it possible for them to be generated in a different format?

If you have a static set of images then I'd recommend using something like PaintShop Pro to batch convert them, changing the format.

If this isn't an option then there might be some mileage in looking for a pre-written Java applet (or another browser plugin) that can display the images in the browser.
