| Please no. Pixel measurements are the only reasonable way of thinking

| vast majority of the world measures things in centimetres.

Yea, 64 pixels on my monitor is an inch, on yours it may be .25 inches,
and on your 720 dot per inch printer its how much?

pixels are the last way of specifying tabs.  HTML and even CSS was not
designed for complete control... through the idea out the door...
