accept-file-ext

Accept attribute should allow file extensions in addition to the current allowed values

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Julian Reschke
Opened on:
2012-01-14
Description:
(raised on behalf of sharco@microsoft.com):

The spec states: “The accept attribute may be specified to provide
user agents with a hint of what file types will be accepted.” The options
currently allowed in the accept attribute are mime types and the special tokens
“audio/*”, “image/*”, “video/*”. Allowing file extensions to be a token would
help many developers and fits in exactly with the purpose of the accept
attribute.

Created issue 'Accept attribute should allow file extensions in addition to the current allowed values' nickname accept-file-ext owned by Julian Reschke on product HTML 5 spec, description '(raised on behalf of sharco@microsoft.com):

The spec states: “The accept attribute may be specified to provide
user agents with a hint of what file types will be accepted.” The options
currently allowed in the accept attribute are mime types and the special tokens
