I am not sure where this belief comes from, but unless I am mistaken 
height and width *are* valid attributes for img in XHTML1.0, even

That said... I have no strong feeling about having or removing the said 
attributes in the valid badge code. Does anyone on the list know if 
this is good/bad practice to have them?
