i'm not sure if it really matters how big a pixel is defined as, as I see 
it, one pixel, one square of color, is one pixel. If everything on the 
screen is measured in pixels, then the term pixel is relative to the 
screen resolution. Right? why not just set the standards for rendering 
type and info to be relative to one screen pixel on any particular 
machine? as long as a pixel doesn't vary from one side of the screen to 
the other, it shouldn't effect the layout, just the size of the image.
