   I mailed a message 11/12 responding to "This is the best argument I've
   ever seen for NEVER using pixels as the unit... ", but I never saw it
   on the list. I agreed that font-relevant measurements such as points or
   basefont ems would be nice. But pixels are the measure of a display and
   there is no need to interpret a pixel measurement at all.
   Pixel-dimensioned frames are sized perfectly in IE at any display
   resolution or window size, and I'll be surprised if this isn't the case
   with the Mac beta as well. 

That would be nice to see (when I can get the godsdamn thing working:
some bright spark at Microsoft decided not to let MSIE work with the
Trumpet Winsock and a SLIP-emulator, which I need, because TIA
requires a logout script, which Microsoft also fail to provide for in
DUN).
