Font sizing with rem

by 4 others

What do we do for browsers that don't support rem units?

To do so, we specify the font-size using px units first and then define it again using rem units.

html { font-size: 62.5%; } body { font-size: 14px; font-size: 1.4rem; } /* =14px */ h1 { font-size: 24px; font-size: 2.4rem; } /* =24px */
