future player.  I've been wondering if there is a cheap way to get it from the HTML wrapper.

There are things in the w3c documents that sounds promising: The new css3 media queries should
be able to detect "resolution" as ppi or ppcm. [1] And JS should be able to deploy media queries
programatic and add eventListeners for when the queries changes. [2].

But testing this in FireFox on Mac, guess what it told me ... 96 ppi ... again the abstraction
of the browser, not the real screen ppi.

I can't find a reliable way to read the users real run-time screen ppi value if we deploy
to the web. That is problematic in a multi screen universe. Sigh.
