  <h1>Placeholders for images with known aspect ratios</h1>

  <p>These images do not have <code>width</code> and <code>height</code> attributes, but they still take up the right amount of space before they load. They don't push text down the screen as the browser figures out what size they are. This is very helpful
    for lazy loading images of unknown size with a known aspect ratio without disturbing the user as they read the page, possibly ahead of the lazy loading image.</p>

  <button>Load images</button>

  <p>This uses the same trick as responsive YouTube embeds. Each image is wrapped in a <code>div</code> element with <code>padding-bottom</code> set to a percentage that creates the wanted aspect ratio. The <code>img</code> element inside the div
    is set to take up 100% of its container's height and width. This way, the wrapping <code>div</code> is responsible for maintaining the height of the image, not the image itself.</p>
