Note that Gecko supports this, in the cases when it falls back to a 
non-replaced element for failed images.  At that point you can style the 
image however you please, obviously, since it's a non-replaced element.

The only piece needed to make this work completely (and which Gecko 
implements with a -moz prefix) is a selector to select images that have 
failed to load.
