When planning a new site, how do u do with picking up the sizes of the fonts. When using CSS you can choose between '%' and sizes in pixels...

What is better to use?

Actually you can pick between 'px', '%', 'pt' <i>and</i> 'em' :wink:

Simply put, use %.

% allows users with bad/partial eyesight to resize the text easily. Using px or pt will <b>not</b> let them do that if they are using IE. This is poor accessibility (which is being slowly made illeagal, dependant on where you are in the world).

em's can also do the same thing, and have their own uses, but I tend to use them for other things.

pt's are good for using on print styles.
