EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please
reopen this bug. If you would like to escalate the issue to the full HTML
Working Group, please add the TrackerRequest keyword to this bug, and suggest

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change

(whether by CSS or by size="") is a bit dodgy from a security perspective. I
really highly recommend just letting browsers make them look like whatever they
look like.
