You might be referring to pixel perfection, in which case it will
never be "perfectly fixed", as this is not the goal of CSS. Even the
fact that different user agent manufacturers interpret the CSS specs
differently, while not a "good" thing, will probably never go away
completely. The below link points to a fairly sane discussion about
pixel perfection and designer choices.
