Thanks for the patch David, I've actually just 10 minutes ago  
submitted a similar patch to SVN so hopefully it will make it on to  
the site before long. I opted for only applying the JS fix to IE6  
though as all the more modern browsers (including IE7) have support  
for auto width/height. I wasn't absolutely convinced that my IE6  
patch was doing the right thing though so please do suggest changes  
if/when it goes live.
