Whoops didn't show that. So, it means that it is impossible to get
any end-representation attribute that has *not* ben explicitly
set within a correspoding CSS declaration. Does that imply as well
that there is no standard (e.g. inter-browser) way to get basic
representation properties such as width etc? (if found a solution
that works with the offsetWidth HTML Element property but that is
not part of the HTML DOM standard)

Thanks for your help,
