WordPress isn't using "inline styles", it's using HTML attributes.
These are two different things.

The theme *cannot* override inline styles, unless it's using
!important (it's not). However, any CSS will override HTML attributes,
which are notably not styles.

Basically, what I'm saying is that the resize code should produce this:

<img src="whatever" width="123" height="123" style="width:123px;
height:123px" />

Right now it's not producing that "style" parameter. If it was, then
the width and height declarations in the theme wouldn't make any
difference at all.
