Home Forums CSS [Solved] EMs for media queries and layout Re: EMs for media queries and layout


My beef with REM’s is based on “I don’t have problems with EM inheritance issues the way I code”, I don’t like having to duplicate lines of CSS to have a fallback to a problem I don’t have.

That said, it was pretty self gratifying to see this Tweet by Brad Frost a few days ago.

“Late night converting rems back to ems. I tried, but the compatibility just isn’t there, and the fallbacks aren’t ideal.”
