this issue isn't raised by me but Hax from the HTML5 Chinese IG. Also,

  # Issue 18.
  # Summary:  Define 'dpi' and 'dpcm' in terms of the real physical
  #           units, not the CSS units

his comment wasn't specifically about this but a comment on physical
units and browser support as he didn't know CSS2.1 has resolved this
issue already.

I suggest we categorize this issue as Out-Of-Scope or since it's more
like an issue in CSS3 V&U.

I asked him if would accept this or not but he hasn't reply me. (By the
way, his name is "贺师俊" or "HE Shi-Jun" in romanization.




May I ask you to change my name on the DoC to something else? I almost
never go by "Kenny Lu" as it's not my official name and there are
probably too many "Kenny Lu" out there. Here is my preference in order:

* 呂康豪 (Kang-Hao Lu)
* Kang-Hao (Kenny) Lu
* kennyluck


Cheers,
Kenny
