I agree that that would be the more sophisticated solution. However all this is only temporary anyway because we have not yet been told how the transition to using templates is going to proceed. Until that is clear I don't think we should spend too much time on style issues. I just wanted a quick fix to the enormous space required by the upcoming events block as it is now. If you can implement the above before Moodle 1.3 beta closes then please do, otherwise let us at least do the <img> thing.
