in thread publish-time conditionals w. Mason?

CSS2 does offer to-the-pixel control without "abusing" HTML. If only it were implemented fully in all major browsers *sign*.

    And "to-the-pixel" manipulation is wrong, because you don't know the DPI or display distance of my display.

    Let HTML be what it was intended to be. A display is not paper. You do have to learn to design differently. Specify logical layout. Not pixels. Not points. Then your page can be displayed on my laptop, my extra-wide home display, my office's wall projector, and even my HTML-enabled phone.

    If you ever find yourself asking "Do most of my visitors come in at 1024x780 or 800x600?", step away from the keyboard and go back to paper design. Stay off the web, please.
