The fact is, for Struts, that the HTML specification is what it is, so 
you need to take this to an arena where those decisions are made, like 
W3C at  If you want, you can build an "upgrade" of 
<html:image> that creates an image that is the size you want to put into 
the tag as width and height.  I did that myself.  Works great.  This all 
is open source so sometimes we have to chip in and to do it too.  That 
is not a suggestion for you in any "moral" sense but merely an 
encouragement that there is a solution, and you can implement it.  I 
should have my tag out when I get the details worked out sufficient to 
make them public.  (The difficulty has been a generic solution that 
covers submit, image, img and <input type='file'>.  I am close to done now.)
