While I am sure I can not be the only one to mention this I am curious as to 
why the validator does not allow for the "HEIGHT" attribute on elements that 
the specification clearly says is a valid attribute. I was attempting to 
create an image with it's exact dimensions in attributes instead of using 
CSS since I want the page to display properly without CSS but the validator 
says that it is invalid to use the Height attribute. According the HTML 4.01 
spec it is a valid use of the attribute so why does the validator reject it? 
This happens when using both the Strict and Transitional doctypes. Thanks.
