I certainly didn't say anything in those terms
Er, yes, you did. You explicitly used the attribute "display" -- as in, "inline" vs. "none" -- in several posts. And throughout this thread you've talked about showing and not showing an image. Only later did it turn out that you need the image to be there all along, occupying space, whether blacked-out or not.
What do I replace that with.
Nothing. But it does absolutely no harm to retain the phrase. HTML 4 was open to the possibility that a style could be some type other than "text/css", hence the "type=et cetera" element, though even there CSS (a specific language) would be the default. HTML 5 assumes styles are CSS, so all that's needed is <style>.
Since the code we're talking about is not written in HTML 5 (as witnessed by tags such as <nobr> and <font>) it makes no difference one way or the other.
That's because all of the 'map' portion of the page will eventually be placed inside of a table.
