Thanks for the good work Ondrej! A big step forward. I will test it in 
the next few days and hopefully can give some feedback.

Although this is a step forward I think working with pixels is something 
from the past as with the Sinclair ZX81 (where you have 64x48 pixels) or 
Commodore 64.  (320x200px!) :-) But today's computers still thinking in 
pixels not in size. And working with just pixels might work if our 
screens will always be 1024x768 pixels with size of 15".
