Home Forums CSS Em units for page layout Re: Em units for page layout


Personally I prefer using em’s on font-sizes, paddings and margins only. The combination of fixed/fluid is easy to control and gives users room enough to resize the font-size. Still, for Iphones and mobile devices, I’d like to just design plain sites. Easy, without heavy colour-mixtures, and easy to navigate. I’ve done some surfing on my old cellphone, and I got to say alot of sites you should be able to use on a cellphone’s browser, doesn’t work at all.
