I agree with you totally there!!!
It is really annoying when you start reading a document and it starts
bouncing around the screen because people haven't set width and hight
attributes... but I guess I didn't explain myself properly...

What about tiny bullets around the same size as your font...  because the
files are so small and the image is so small it doesn't (noticably) affect
the text.

Should you still put in image width/height then as it makes my page take a
lot longer to load???
