Er, good point.  I just looked at the attribute parsing, not the usage. 
  Need an <input type="image"> to see the width attribute there in 
action, of course.

But yes, "1a" is ignored any time we're parsing an integer, while "1g" 
is parsed as "1".  I don't think we want to spec this behavior.  ;)
