NOWHERE in HTML does any attribute take a number and a unit which isn't 
a percentage. Either its an integer (which is pixels) or its a 
percentage (with has a % sigh). In CSS units are required for all 
non-zero lengths, in HTML they are forbidden for pixel lengths and 
required for percentage lengths.
