If you're saying comfort width *should* be something measured in mm or cm, sure. But, my comfort width is determined by what I can and cannot fit into my browser window (without scroll) on the sites I typically visit. Specifically, it is the smallest width for which this is true. If this is the case in general, then to say "because comfort width is measured in cm, etc., web layouts should not depend on px" is sort of circular. -- Matt Warden Cleveland, OH, USA http://mattwarden.com This email proudly and graciously contributes to entropy.
