And if you already have the "class" and "id" attributes, why shouldn't you
be allowed to use "style", too? If you question the use of the "style"
attribute here, please question at least "class", too. That's my opinion.

It might make perfect sense to define something via "style" attribute if it
occurs only once -- this might affect images, but also frames. If you
propose to define the width and height measure of frames introducing a
"class" for each of them, I claim that this is bad practice. (And not being
allowed to use "style" here means you're forced to this practice.)

-- I didn't want to start a discussion about the current XFrames WD, and I
didn't want to judge /anything/ concerning XFrames in general -- the only
thing I wanted is to make two remarks :)
