Most graphics packages will give you the width and height. These values
must be in pixels.

It is always good html style to include these tags as Netscape can then
layout the page without having to wait for the images to load. This means
you can read the text - while Netscape uses image placeholders while the
graphics are being loaded. 

If you are using Javascript - you must use width and height otherwise
Netscape gets confused and can cause you script to behave erratically.
