Agreed. Not only the size of the display -- but what's a size of a pixel?


Presentation is a difficult problem to solve, but I don't think PHP enters into 
the equation. From my view, the only thing that PHP can do is device-sniff, 
which is clearly a losing proposition.

I believe that a presentation solution will be solved by presentation languages 
(i.e, client-side).
