font size in ems

  • # August 24, 2008 at 3:42 pm

    (first try)—-
    i have given the body tag a size of 62.5%. and the wraper that hold my site a font-size of 1.2em (12px). and then on tag p (paragraph) a font-size of 1.0em. so shouldnt now all my p tags be 12px? (i havent declared other font-size in my site). firefox views the site ok. but ie6 renders the size smaller.

    (second try)—-

    i removed the font-size 1.2 from #wraper and added it to the p tag. still same effect, ie renders text size smaller. but if i put in pixels it works…

    Hi moonlord –

    Can you post an example of your code? That might help troubleshoot. :D
