Description Alexei03a 2012-12-08 12:56:53 UTC
I came up with a full analogue DIV element. Has many differences. Behavior is the same as the IMG, Canvas and Video tag, the tag is only for content. Has the attributes width and height, like the Canvas. Ideal for inserting SVG content.

<!-- Width and Height must be 300x300 (with CSS values) -->
<zone width="256" height="256" style="width: 300px;">
  <img src="image.png" style="width: 100%; height: 100%;">

"<zone>" - the fourth graphical HTML element. Why "zone", why not "area". Because the "area" occupied. In general, the idea is so easy and simple that I will not describe in detail. After all, the whole idea can be imported from Canvas, just have to imagine that it is possible to store other items.
Comment 1 Alexei03a 2012-12-09 02:53:20 UTC
In Russian Features:
- Тег содержит только два обязательных аттрибута: width и height.
- Стандартный размер этого тега - 300x150. Это вызвано тем, что элемент не должен менять свои границы от содержимого (т.е. контента).
- Поведение width и height такое же, как у canvas.
- Все CSS свойства применяются также, как у Canvas. Но при этом, может влиять на содержимое (но не влияет на сам элемент).
- Может иметь любое позиционирование (поведение как у любого другого элемента, содержимое должно вести себя также).
- Подходит для создания кастомных графических элементов, video-плееров и т.п.
- Можно встроить SVG данные (подобно IMG).
- Не требователен к скриптам. Достаточно использовать стили.

I'm confused. What's wrong with using a div? I'm not clear what the use case for this element is.
