"The two attributes must be omitted if the resource in question does not have
both an intrinsic width and an intrinsic height."

The use of a double negative is confusing. Can you please clarify what happens
when the attributes are omitted? I.e., if an either attribute is missing, the
UA computes the width and height from the resource (or something similar).
