Whoa! There's a new idea in town. At least for me. The em, which I see mentioned in a nearby post. The idea of using the em for text needs a little explanation. But first, on my own I found out that the em came from the idea of the size of a box that would enclose the Roman letter "M". (it was all caps long ago). Cutting to the chase: Is this right? By setting the basic font size to 1 em then you merely use the css properties of 'small', 'x-large', etc to let the browser display it at it's best? F.
