curious font-size question
Im just wondering what what is the overall norm here.
I do see alot of this type format
I can see the benefit to both, but also there are times that you need to dial in the font size perfectly and so the px method would work better.
Questions are :
What are they teaching in school now or leaning toward?
Is there an industry standard or w3c preference here?

Hi, I do not know that there is an industry standard as such but for accessibility the font size is best declared as em or & values. Personally I only use a fixed size for headers to gain some cross browser compatiblity and within my menu bar since I wish this area to remain a constant size. Just my personal feeling on the subject but I do not like the font size to small or unchangable. JimJims Way is following a strict but simple code
