Height and Width Arguments in IMG Tags

By Deane Barker on August 5, 2003

Height and Width challenged: Adam Kalsey has some interesting thoughts about height and width arguments in images.

>Could someone tell me why height and width attributes are needed for images? Non-graphic browsers don’t use them, and graphic browsers should be smart enough to figure out the size on their own. The first few bytes of common image formats contain the image’s size, so the browser doesn’t even need to download the whole image.
