I think I am in love, Brad.

Question: When would the first and second line of widths ever be
different?  In the original draft the second set of numbers specified
the border width, but what does it specify here?  A scaling factor?
In your examples they are always the same, so I can't tell.

Also, a small but confusing typo: in the code for the last example, in
the third set of numbers, you have a "146px" rather than "14px".  You
also misspelled "Alladins_Lamp.png".
