Steps to reproduce

MicroSoft Edge does not recognise the following HTML code :

<IMG style="height: 20%" SRC="example.jpg">

This code renders perfectly correctly without any problem on Google Chrome and on Android. Why does it not do so on Edge ?

I use this attribute to reduce an image to the size of an icon when I am coding a menu of images . I use one of the images in a referenced folder as a simple icon, to illustrate a typical example of the contents of the referenced folder in the menu itself .

In Google Chrome and Android, it simply reduces the photo height to 20% of the original, whereas in MicroSoft Edge only, it displays the image in full size. That means that my website is compatible with Android and Google Chrome - the two dominant web browsers - but not in MicroSoft Edge. MicroSoft may have reasons for not supporting this feature, but consideration needs to be given that these days there are probably more cellphone devices which are used to access websites in the public arena (as opposed to the corporate arena) than Windows based devices.

I have always tried to be loyal to MicroSoft products but when they are not compatible with similar market-leading products, then it tests my loyalty.

Please fix this problem.
