Home Forums Other Which font sizing is best? EM vs PX vs % Re: Which font sizing is best? EM vs PX vs %


@joshuanhibbert Yea, I know you’re right — I just never had to need for it, really, since I haven’t done many true responsive sites yet…which is why I’ve been sticking with PX so far.

On the other hand, I did use EMs on big e-commerce sites a few years ago, and even though I saw the potential for it, I never actually executed that. In the end, it was all about pixels anyway. None of the sites I ever had to do for a client (freelance or work) was ever meant to be responsive, most of them just want things to work on desktop and “usable” on mobile (not “optimized”). Soooo….

In the end, I just have to do a good responsive site, and that’s when I will probably start using it! :)
