Remarks

If you specify the IHTMLCurrentStyle::height property of an img object but not the IHTMLCurrentStyle::width property, the width is proportional to the height according to the dimensions of the image source file.

To perform operations on the numeric value of this property, use IHTMLStyle::pixelHeight or IHTMLStyle::posHeight.

As of Microsoft Internet Explorer 6, when you use the !DOCTYPE declaration to specify standards-compliant mode, this property specifies the distance between the top and bottom edges of the content box—that is, within the IHTMLCurrentStyle::padding.

When the !DOCTYPE declaration does not specify standards-compliant mode, and with earlier versions of Windows Internet Explorer, this property includes the object's content box, plus the values of the following properties: IHTMLRuleStyle::borderTop, IHTMLRuleStyle::borderBottom, IHTMLCurrentStyle::paddingTop, and IHTMLCurrentStyle::paddingBottom. Subtracting the sum of the values of these properties from the value of the IHTMLCurrentStyle::height property equals the height of the parent object's content box.
