I was giving a rule of thumb for the majority of computer users not for
power users like those with film scanners.  I just did a quick measurement
of a 15" screen which had about 10.8" visible width where it displayed 800
pixels.  That works out to 74 dpi.  Given variations in visible display
size etc, 72dpi is still a worthwhile rule of thumb.  100dpi is easier 
of course. :)

AFAIK digital cameras produce files which are set to 72 dpi.  Can anyone
who has one check this?  I know it's been driving my brother nuts when people
send digicam pics at screen resolutions and expect him to print them in
a magazine!
