I looked in the archive for previous discussion of this, but the only time I
saw it mentioned (from a couple of years ago) it was left unresolved.

Given that HEIGHT and WIDTH are important for graphical browser
pre-rendering without disruptive redraws, why doesn't the HTML 4.0 DTD
permit INPUT SRC=button.gif HEIGHT=54 WIDTH=27, even at this late date?  We
make all this fuss over using dimensions (along with ALT) in regular images,
and we don't even allow it in buttons.

Relying on the same pre-rendering benefits from stylesheets seems overly
optimistic.
