I totally agree that relative sizes (em, % or just not fixing sizes)
is _essential_ for reading pages in web browsers.

However when printing pt sizes do make sense, can I suggest that
_if_ there is a desire to fix sizes with pt's for print that two
different style sheets are used, one for screen media and one for
print?

  <link href="screen.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen" />

  <link href="print.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="print" />
