I just thought setting exact pixel sizes would be frowned upon somewhat?
Well, it used to be rather more of an issue than it is now, at least
for accessibility-related reasons. A while back, many browsers
couldn’t zoom pixel-defined text. Now, however, I don’t think any
browser is limited that way. (I’m not sure about IE6, but I struggle
to admit that’s a browser at all these days. And IE6 usage figures
are becoming very small in most sectors, too.
And that it would be better to have everything elastic?
To make that work well you have to produce structures that are also
more elastic and a page setup that makes all this work together.
Would pixel size fonts be common in huge budget sites like?
The following snippet of CSS code:
font: 12px/18px “Lucida Grande”, “Lucida Sans Unicode”, Arial,
is from Apple’s ‘base.css’ file, used on www.apple.com. See
http://images.apple.com/global/styles/base.css for the full file.
But do note that it isn’t really quite as simple as I may be making
it appear. Sometimes this is a great way to work, sometimes it is
better to work differently. My take, however, is that the pixel-size
approach is definitely the quickest and simplest way to go while
you’re getting up to speed.
I don’t mean to annoy you, but could you outline some other ways
this problem can be addrsssed?
Heh. I’m not annoyed at all. But I’m afraid I’ll have to leave it
to others to do this. First, I generally go the pixel-size route
myself, as I find it generally much simpler. Second, I’m facing a few
simultaneous deadlines. Gulp…
