An image referenced such as:

<img border="0" src="themes/DeepBlue/images/logo-graphic.gif" width="">

isn't shown by MSIE, but is shown (normal-width) by Mozilla.  This could
easily be a MSIE bug, but I am unclear on what the standards say in this case.

Reproducible: Always

http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/struct/objects.html#h-13.7.1 doesn't mention anything
about this case. IE seems to consider an empty value equal to "0", but I don't
think that's right. Mozilla should be right.

this is not an mozilla bug (see for ref bug 169599)
Depends on: 169599
Whiteboard: INVALID?

Note that <table cellpadding=""> does *not* get interpreted as 0, so it's not
like IE is consistent.

Again I say, Show Me The Topsite.  Unless this breaks the web, let's not
complicate our parsing more with useless special cases like this.  I say WONTFIX.
