I think that's going to prove confusing to lots of people, since it's
inconsistent with HTML (or at least, HTML as widely implemented.) In
an HTML document, I can write

<img src=foo.gif>


<img src="foo.gif">

and they'll be interpreted the same way. That's the expectation people
will have of the style sheet syntax, it seems to me.

Am I correct in assuming that it's intended to be used like this?

(a) img : border-style = none

If so, I don't like the "normal" value of border-style, since what's "normal"
is context-sensitive. Maybe "minimal" instead?

In any case, I don't have a problem with it being supported under level 2;
my guess is that most browser writers, when they add stylesheets to their
browsers, will do all of level 1 and much of level 2.

>Btw. is a line break allowed before/after an image?

Unless it's in a <p nowrap>, I'd say yes. (BTW, am I correct in thinking
that there's no nowrap attribute for anything but paragraphs in HTML 3?)
