It is using the same technology that the reader or browser will be using, and so none of these complexities that Scrivener faces are relevant—hence apples and oranges.

This must be where I don’t understand.Isn’t Scrivener in a sense an HTML editor when it compiles an epub?
When writing in Scrivener I should be able to size images the way I want, without it having an effect on how they appear when I compile, because in Scrivener writing and compiling are two separate things and the way it looks in one doesn’t affect the other.

Essentially, if the pixel width/height of the image does not match the points width/height, then Scrivener knows the image uses a non-72 DPI and then adds the point width/height as the pixel height/width for the HTML. i.e.:
Code: Select all
if (img.pixelsWide != img.pointsWide || img.pixelsHigh != img.pointsWide)
... include "w=[img.pointsWide]px" etc.
