MeFiHTML: Is there a reason to first set profile images to width & height = 0, then set the actual size via javascript?

The final effect is that the page loads, then all of a sudden shifts 50px to the right as the images widths are set. Is this by design? Wouldn't it make more sense to just set the real size in the first place?

The code under consideration:

[img style="border: 1px solid gray; padding: 1px; float: left; clear: left; position: relative; bottom: 55px; margin-right: 5px; width: 50px; height: 50px;" onload="; 50;" onerror='this.src="";' src="" width="0" height="0"]

Every page? I'm guessing you have that profile image Greasemonkey script installed that was posted a while back. Try disabling Greasemonkey to verify.

If the images are gone when you have Greasemonkey disabled, then that's why you're seeing profile images on every page. You'll have to contact the author of that script to change it.

Sure, no problem. Here's the original thread about that script if you need it.
