I agree. Pixel perfection is almost always only achievable through the use of absolute positioning, absolute font-sizes, and the like. Those type of things go against many standards and common-best-practices of web design, which needs to inherently be flexible to match the broad number of browsers, resolutions, available fonts, and the like.

Jeremy, is your client really looking for "pixel perfection"
I note you are also looking for a person who is passionate and has a thorough understanding of web design; such a person may have difficulty with pixel perfection.
