Well, damn. That's what I get for speaking without double-checking the
spec first. Though, John Brooks did point out to me that we're supposed
to specify the width for floats:
I dunno why that should be. Seems to me that there's no harm in letting
the browser automagically figure out widths, if none are specified
(which is what seems to happen, anyhow).
