Media Queries needs clarification on what physical units correspond to

State:
CLOSED
Product:
Media Queries
Raised by:
Elika Etemad
Opened on:
2010-06-23
Description:
Since the physical units (mm, cm, in, etc) are now pegged to an arbitrary scale rather than to their physical measurements in CSS, it's unclear how they should behave in Media Queries.
