Fair point. I prolly shouldn't have included the height="" and width=""  
attributes. New example:

   <div><img src="image" alt=""></div>

   div { position:relative; width:1000px }
   img { position:absolute; left:0; right:0 }

The image has an intrinsic width of 200px by 200px. The current  
specification says you have to ignore right again which might not make  
sense to anyone...
