I think we all agree it's not achievable. Makes an easily remembered
phrase though :-)

Agree, but only when constrained by a 'profile' (if that is what we
are going to call different use cases).

In a desktop environment, where printing is used.

-1. Scaling and 'location and size' need to be described better.
Are we talking about a printed output from an application, or screen
Using printed output is far easier (though yet again it is a manual test, not

Take a word processor instance. Print it out using A4 setting. Measure
position of (some part of the content). Should be x,y mm +- z mm wrt top left.

That's a usable metric. Is that a fair definition of 'pixel perfect' for this

Perhaps users want scaling too. I don't know.

Again, testing and draft output could be different.

Now we have a profiled description of 'pixel perfect'.

Anyone not OK with that?
