Ah   the installed base!   Still  height and width can be invoked via the
stylesheet, although whether any browser would support this is an
interesting question. I think I tried once with Netscape 4 and it did not.
Although Netscape 6 has recently been heavily criticised for not adhering
to the W3C standards, it normally does a pretty good job.
