    I am quite and experienced web builder but I love working with generate press because its so easy.

    If there any practical way I can work with EMs rather than pixels for font size,

    I read its more accessible, but I do notice that any text size increase plugins will work on pixels, so perhaps its not that important.

    I would welcome your ideas,

    Hi Mark,

    The one avantage ems have over px is that you can set a base font size in em, and then adjust all fonts on mobile by adjusting that base font size.

    However, we’re not working with a ton of different font sizes throughout the theme – there’s only a handful (body, site title, tagline, navigation, widget titles and headings).

    Therefore, I don’t see a huge advantage to using ems over px. It’s pretty easy to adjust specific fonts on mobile using some CSS, and you can choose to only adjust a couple over adjusting all of them.

    Let me know if you need more info 🙂
