Maybe it should be borne in mind, that screen independent units are
Twips, not dpi, which are basically printing units ( and therefore
inherently misleading). Screens are almost universally rated using
dot pitch ( dot trio pitch ).
SWF uses twips internally, and Flash player for positioning items on
