You can. Be mindful of the order of your attributes as well as the self-closing end slash / (since the sites are HTML 4)

So your image needs to be coded up as:

<img src="http://example.com/image.jpg" width="125" height="225" alt="uighur"> 

Variations include:

<img src="http://example.com/image.jpg" width="125" height="225" alt="yo ho" > 

<img src="http://example.com/image.jpg" width="125" height="225"> 

<img src="http://example.com/image.jpg" alt="Ho-hum image"> 

<img src="http://example.com/image.jpg">

Yeah, I have been proudly displaying an image on my profile for a while, I remember the width and height attributes working for me, I don't know what's going wrong for you. – Sam152 Mar 15 '10 at 11:28
