I'm starting a new project today and I want to make sure I set up the type scale in a future-forward way. I've been Googling around for what the most modern method for it would be.
I really like this method http://css-tricks.com/rems-ems/. Setting to a standard pixel size, using rems for components and then ems for everything inside.
I also read that setting to a pixel size screws up zooming at least up to IE9. But also setting it to a percentage is unreliable, depending on browser defaults.
I know people who swear by percentages only. I also know people with Deal With It shades on using only pixels.
Oh my gosh, my brain is hurting.
What do you all do?
