| | 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. 
| 
| That would be fine Peter, but Netscape left out any attempt for
| automatic sizing.  I can't just put an Image (images are measured in
| Pixels, not inches, not em's) in a frame and have the frame
| automatically detect that it would be best to be the same size.  Most
| people I see make sure the frame is large enough on their platform
for
| the image ...  I am not sure they check with other platforms to make
| sure it still is...
