abandon em? - use pixel sizes?

Recommended Posts

I have been setting a font-size percentage in the body tag and working with "em" font sizes. With the newer browser's that just use zoom and re-size the whole page, is it a better idea to just use pixels (px) for font sizes?


Or would it be a good idea to continue using em sizes to support IE6/7?


What do you do?

For the accessibility for poor sighted users or people simply with other preferences... I would agree with NuCoder... continue using EM or switch to %


1 em = 100% = chosen default size for the chosen font chosen by the user.


.8 em = 80% of the users chosen defaults


1.2 em = 120% of the users chosen default settings.
