In the CSS2.1 Default HTML Style sheet:

http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/sample.html

It still says that CSS2.1 cannot fully express the presentation
of elements like img and frame. Yet CSS3 can, like so:

img, object, applet, embed, iframe, frame, frameset 
{ 
 display:inline-block; 
}

http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/WD-css3-ui-20030703/#qA

With the introduction of inline-block to CSS2.1, it can in fact
fully define all these elements' presentation. This and several
other sections of the sample stylesheet need to be updated to
reflect this newly available value in CSS2.1.
