Chapter Thirteen. Working with Browsers ... > The Font Size Keyword Method

The Font Size Keyword Method

Little known and scarcely ever used, CSS1 (and later, CSS2) offered seven font size keywords intended to control text sizes without the absolutism of pixels or the inheritance, cross-platform, and user option hazards of ems and percentages. The seven keywords appear next, and their meaning will be obvious to anyone who has ever bought a tee shirt (http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/fonts.html#value-def-absolute-size):

xx-small

x-small

small

medium

large

x-large

xx-large
