Tutorial 22: The Font of Foulness, Part I: Size Matters

Summary

FONT, BASEFONT, BIG and SMALL are works of the Devil and should never be used. When specifying font sizes, authors are advised to use percentage sizes in order to have their fonts scale properly between browsers and between platforms. If you are updating documents that are already using these elements to use CSS directives instead, you can use the appropriate percentages (70% for size 1, 84% for size 2, 100% for size 3, 120% for size 4, 150% for size 5, 200% for size 6 and 300% for size 7) to mimic the behaviour of these elements.
