Home Forums CSS Differing font size in FF v IE Re: Differing font size in FF v IE


the !important is definitely a no no imo.
i would try and stick to using one font size setting as well. dont mix 62.5% with ems. the only time i mix is i’ll set the body at small and then do percentages throughout the rest of the site. but even then you have to calculate whats added from the hierarchy and it can get complex if you have a big style sheet.

so go with ems, go with px, go with pt, go with small medium large or go with % but mixing them up always causes problems imo.

ems are the best i think just bc you can get so detailed with them. 1 em or 1.35 or 1.5 or .12 so on and so forth.
