Can an IMG have a "note" attached to indicate (1)its intended dots per
inch, and (2)whether non-integral (i.e., other than 100%, 200%, 300%...)
scaling should be allowed?

My 72dpi title graphics come out "tiny" (so I'm told) on 100dpi monitors,
and I'm wondering if there's any way to keep bitmaps and text more in sync
with each other. Right now, the best I can do is require table support of
my visitors' browsers, which helps with positioning balance but not with
size.
