Description Rich Schwerdtfeger 2010-11-16 22:36:40 UTC
A problem exists such that when a user changes the zooming level in the browser a canvas author needs to be able to assess the resolution to rescale the canvas accordingly. When zoom changes occur a resize event is transmitted in many browsers. In order to properly redraw the canvas the windows screen logical DPI x and y data need to spec'd in HTML 5 so as to be consistent across browsers. This will address canvas clarity issues during zooming.

This is a CSSOM issue. Anne, what component should I use for CSSOM issues?
Comment 2 Anne 2011-01-11 09:23:36 UTC
Mike, maybe you can make a component? It might take quite a while by the way before I address this. My backlog is huge and I do not have time soon.

Looks like WebKit is going to go with the Microsoft window.screen extensions. I'll post an update when/if it hits their code base.
