High DPI Web Sites

Dave Hyatt explains a major proposal from Apple’s WebKit team regarding how to enable web sites to scale beautifully on higher-resolution displays in the future. There’s a lot packed into this proposal, and after a quick read it strikes me as very well thought-out — good solutions to real problems. Be sure to check out his follow-up, which emphasizes that this proposal is only about new ways to make web sites look better on higher-resolution displays; existing web sites that don’t use these proposed features would continue to look the same as they do now.
