Hi!

REC-html40-19980424 section 13.7.1 says:

| When the object is an image, it is scaled. User agents should do their best
| to scale an object or image to match the width and height specified by the
| author. Note that lengths expressed as percentages are based on the
| horizontal or vertical space currently available, not on the natural size of
                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| the image, object, or applet.

What exactly is "vertical space currently available", I mean my canvas
has practically an infinite amout of vertical space available.

(Note that CSS-1 forbids percentages values for `height').

Regards,
Gilbert.
