replaced element

From Glossary of Cascading Style Sheets, level 2 CSS2 Specification (1998-05-12) | Glossary for this source

An element for which the CSS formatter knows only the intrinsic dimensions. In HTML, IMG, INPUT, TEXTAREA, SELECT, and OBJECT elements can be examples of replaced elements. For example, the content of the IMG element is often replaced by the image that the "src" attribute designates. CSS does not define how the intrinsic dimensions are found.
