   Just when I figure it's impossible to get a 50-pixel-high frame I start
   resizing the browser window and -- soooo cool! -- the frame height gets
   animated! If get the browser window to just the right height, the frame
   height (when spec'd at 58 pixels) is really 50 pixels high and my
   graphic just fits!

This is the best argument I've ever seen for NEVER using pixels as the
unit. People's screens are just too diverse (except on a corporate
intranet) for it to be meaningful.
