Does this apply to `width' as well? In implementation of a browser,
all these HTML attributes get converted to CSS style attributes
internally. I mean is <IMG width='50%'> different from
<IMG style='width: 50%'> ?

Assuming you have a canvas width of say 600px. If available means
visible, the first thing translates to 300px, while the other
translates to half the width of the containing block level element.
(Which is probably less than 300px).

What to do when printing? Take the size of the page?!

Gilbert.
