Is the idea to ensure that the image is displayed at about the same
size on both screens, or that less data is sent in the low-res

One thing that should be noted is that the 'IMG' HTML tag has a 'LOWSRC'
attribute, which is intended for a low resolution version of the image,
but I don't think that ever made it into CSS.

If a low-res device happens to be a TV, then there is a media type 'tv'
which can be specified so the right CSS is used.

Just a quick look at CSS and I see that 'absolute' units are available
for specifying size, such as in, cm and mm. See:
