Pixels @ 54 dpi??

Postby Nixxie » Tue Feb 15, 2005 9:05 pm

Hi,

Thanks for this great site. It really helped me. Just noticed on thing that strikes me as odd. Maybe someone can enlighten me.
In the Typographical section a pixel is stated to be 0.75 point. That would correspond with 54 dpi (since 0.75 pixels/point * 72 points/inch = 54 pixels/inch). Is there any reason for this?

Thanks and regards,
Nixxie
