Destinations are never part of style.  src used properly is also not
part of style.  This is an HTML issue.

href being content is fundamental to the H in HTML.  src is really
just a funny sort of href that causes the linked document to be
automatically fetched.

img.mypix {content: url(clara.gif)}

however the inclusion of elements in the HTML for purely styling
purposes is undesirable.

In general SGML, one would use entities for repeated, well, entities.

If you are thinking of your previous question, the ideographic and
alphabetic versions should be physically adjacent in the source
