Too many markup shortcuts, specify the height and width you want for your 
images. Also, if you are typing anyways you shoud always keep in mind that 
when you type img, you also need to type alt everytime even if it's blank, 
get in the habit.

<img src="balconybar.jpg" width="311" height="233" alt="" />

For non-tabular data in HTML markup, yes it is doomed but otherwise they are a 
wonderful thing to have, your computer wouldn't run without them.

See above link to W3C example.

Lots of markup experts on this list, never bothered with formal associations 
myself as they usually want a membership fee and that goes against my nature, 
would rather donate to Evolt once in a while when I have a few extra dollars 
in my Paypal account.
