Text Scalability

One particular CSS accessibility problem has to do with text resizing. It’s tempting to choose a smaller font size for your work to fit more information on the screen at once. We all know how little space we’re given to work with onscreen anyway, so there’s a justified rationale for going smaller.

The problem is that many people just can’t read text below a certain size. For some, 12-pixel-high text is unreadable, and in extreme cases even 24 pixels is too small. Of course, no one is going to start designing with 24-pixel-high body copy on today’s low-resolution monitors, so there has to be a compromise somewhere.
