Please can you add width and height values for images in the ProZ.com HTML source code? In particular, small icons with no such values tend to show up disproportionally large when viewing the page with images disabled.

Specifically the RSS icon and the folder icons really need those values.

I disagree! Mar 10, 2009

I prefer to see the full image text, which can be trimmed if the image size is set.

Specifying width and height values is good HTML practice any way you look at it.

You should still be able to see the full image text, if your browser supports it. If your browser doesn't have a method of displaying ALT or TITLE text that exceeds the space allowed for it by the image's natural dimensions, then the fault lies with your browser.

RSS icons and forums updated Mar 11, 2009

Samuel,

As a follow-up, the RSS icons and a few dozen images in the forums have been updated. Additionally, I will be stepping up enforcement on using width and height values in new development.
