Status: Accepted
Change Description: see diff given below
Rationale: The interoperability here is nil, especially when you also look at
how browsers handle size="" missing altogether, or size="a" (i.e. being set to
an invalid value), and even more so when you start looking at other attributes
with similar rules. So I've moved away from IE compat here (which is what I had
been trying to go for earlier with these rules) and have specified this
somewhat more sanely, such that it never returns 0.
