    while Opera and Gecko (rendering engine used in Mozilla based browsers) obey CSS, overriding <IMG> attributes. MSIE, instead, gives priority to the (still effect but deprecated by CSS) HTML 3.2 ‘tag soup’.

    it may be surprising, but that is why MSIE quite often gives more predicted results in many cases when using a
