https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=537890 implemented broken IE and
Safari behavior in Gecko (justified as lesser evil). 3.6.x is the last line that
still could make 12pt=12pt by using actual display DPI (when accurately set)
instead of 16px without application of proprietary CSS (mozmm). That breaks
every web page using pt/in/cm/etc. (all absolute units, which 537890 eliminated
for all displays that are not in fact 96 DPI pixel density) to display objects
at their actual size rather than a "logical" size. Open
http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/dpi-screen-window.html or
http://fm.no-ip.com/Auth/Font/fonts-ptdemo.html in a non-96DPI environment in
3.6.x and 4+ side by side to see an example.

I see - another case of 'progress' which ends up not being progress after all.
