Home Forums Other Question about font-sizing with REMs Reply To: Question about font-sizing with REMs




Initially I was referring to rem instead of em. I was reading about Chris Coyier’s most recent method for sizing text and was curious about setting a1px base for making conversions easier and more consistent with the standard font sizing used in design applications. After re-reading the article, I discovered this method would not work properly with a 1px base because he downsizes the base with media-quiries.

In regards to the question about em vs %…I was simply wondering if there was any subtle differences in their output. According to my testing, they both seemed identical, but this article explains there are a few key differences.

Anyways…sorry for the confusion and thanks for the help guys!
