Comments
height 310 pixels The height and width used here are the original dimensions of the picture.  We can change one or both, retaining the original aspect ratio or not, as we choose.
width 450 pixels If we ask the browser to enlarge the picture, it may have poor resolution.  If we shrink the picture, we waste loading time.
surrounding space all 0 here  
text alignment try them These sometimes give unexpected results.
alt text Early Portland This is provided for browsers that have the graphics turned off.  It's especially important if the picture is also a link.  Many browsers display the alt text when the mouse cursor if placed over the picture.
link judgemarq.html Clicking on the picture links to a page that has the same picture at its bottom. 
The html code directs the browser to the location of the graphic file: it might be in the directory of the html file, or it could be at a URL on the other side of the Earth (need an absolute URL then, of course).
