[l2h] Width & Height of GIF images creating problems with IE

apologies if this is a FAQ, but IMG is a very common tag in the archives,
making it hard to search on.
I have been using latex2html to generate online versions of all my latex
documents which are prepared by lyx. The html code that is generated for a
GIF image looks like so:-
WIDTH="" HEIGHT="" ALIGN="BOTTOM" BORDER="0"
This displays perfectly fine on almost all browsers using the default size of
the image except for IE on windows, which appears to interpret this as
WIDTH="0" HEIGHT="0" and therefore not display the image.
This is obviously a problem due to the statistically large number of IE on Win
It is not clear to me as to whether or not this is a problem with:-
- the output of lyx (version 1.2.1)
- latex2html (version 2002-2)
- my GIF images themselves
The two short-term hacks that I am considering are:-
a) disabling the generation of WIDTH="x" HEIGHT="y" entirely and leaving it up
to the browser. Any tips as to where in the source tree is the correct place
to do this would be appreciated.
b) making a sed script that traverses the output and wipes instances of
'WIDTH=""' and 'HEIGHT=""'. This is my fallback option and I would prefer to
many thanks for any help possible.
