Yes, and I would give the user something completely different on a
normal web page.
I do prefer images to stay within their containers (columns), as long as
a visually pleasing result can be achieved. This means I _do_ prefer to
use max-width for images when that works, but the actual image dictates
the actual solution.
However, since that particular page is one of my test pages where
solutions are _supposed_ to be tested to breaking-point and far beyond,
that image isn't there to be read. It is there to break solution - and
The image in question is a full-size (1280 x 635 pixels) screenshot of a
similar page, and is included to test how well different browsers scale
The result, which anyone can test out, is that few browsers can scale
images well enough to at least make such an image _look ok_ - the
positive exception being Opera.
BTW: the relevant article for how to make 'conditional elastic' work
across (most of) browser-land, is here...
