The one debate about typography on the web that we will probably never see the end of is the whole pixel sizes vs. pretty much anything else (em, pt, %, etc). Liorean posts some thoughts Web-Graphics which answer the question What's the point of using pixels?. However there is a point missed here, screen resolution is measured in points per inch (PPI), print resolution is measured in dots per inch (DPI). Otherwise it's a great article.
