Uh-huh, apparently you are unaware how poorly 72 or 96dpi text prints at
such an increased resolution. In order to render this kind of quality on a
page or screen you have to have the information first. Neither present CRT
or web-standard resolutions comply, nor do current web graphics. I
personally love the idea, however it will require considerably more RAM,
from everyone, and the use of real font technology like Adobe's. I wonder
how they compare to my Cinema Displays?
