High Res Problem Update

From Barry Dorrans

(bold emphasis mine)

As the person linked to in the original post, let me try to clear things up:

  1. This is NOT a Microsoft default. It’s a video driver setting, when you switch font sizes around between normal and large.
  2. It’s optional, Dell enabled it as part of their Windows config. A standard install usually doesn’t.
  3. I doubt CSS will help with image scaling, as you can?t detect the current screen DPI and adjust, but overlapping text? Well serves you right for using absolute positioning and assuming a DPI (grin)

So, I hope that clears up any confusion regading the high resolution DPI switching. If you still run into this problem, the .reg file still will do the trick to stop the weird image changes.
