@fantasai also, simply moving the parenthesis won't be enough, because otherwise now you have two conflicting sentences:

> For print media, the anchor unit should be one of the standard physical units (inches, centimeters, etc).

which would imply ALL print media, followed by

>For screen media (including high-resolution devices), lower-resolution devices, and devices with unusual viewing distances, it is recommended instead that the anchor unit be the pixel unit.

which, in light of the preceding sentence, would suggest that it doesn't apply to print media regardless of resolution or viewing distance
