That signals a problem at a lower level: inappropriate usage of css
image replacement. "Correctly" used replaced images have no content,
they are decorative only, thus they *should* disappear completely when
the content is accessed sans images (but with css).
Alas the latter is impossible to achieve since css image replacement
methods fail to free up the canvas space occupied by these elements.
