When no size information is provided for an image in the html/css markup, and the intrinsic size of a jpeg image is used, it appears that Mozilla, IE, and Opera all ignore the resolution information when it is provided in the exif or jfif wrapper; in this case, Mozilla renders at about 150 dpi and IE and Opera at about 96 dpi.

Is this correct?  If those in the know could explain why the resolution information associated with jpeg images is ignored, it would be greatly appreciated.
