Why are you targeting a certain ppi for the web? I think you should rather
go for a certain image size rather then ppi.

The browser does not care about the ppi. It just displays it pixel by pixel.
Only exception seems to be the latest versions of IE which scale images. But
they do not scale it according to any ppi information. Instead they scale it
so that the image fits in the brower window.
