suggestion: relative instead px (pixel) based font size

Hi,

A much overlooked issue with px based fonts is that users of IE5/Win and IE6/Win cannot increase/decrease the font size if the style sheet implements them with pixel values.

I recommend going to a relative sizing scheme.

Benifits:
- IE/Win can now increase/decrease text size
- style sheets become easier to maintain when using relative sizing (using em's or %)

As an illustration for relative sizing:

body {
color: #1E3607;
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-size: small;
}

h1 {

font-size: 120%;

}

etc...


Cheers,

Dominique
