I've inserted this into the style.css to control fonts sizes:

 

h1 {
font-size: 1.7em;
color: #7f8d48;}
 
h2 {
font-size: 1.7em;}
 
h3 {
font-size: 1.5em;}
 
h4 {
font-size: 1.3em;}
 
h5 {
font-size: 1.3em; font-weight:300;}
 
look reasonable?  is it better to use em, px, or percent?
 
Thanks

Hi there,

 

If you adding custom code are you adding it to Pagelines>site options>custom code or to the style.css inside the base theme or the customise plugin. We don't advise you enter or amend any core files as they will be wiped on update.

 

Using em in the css is ok.

Its all been put in the style.css.  

 

my question is whether there is any preference regarding using em, px, or percent for fonts.  in particular, have you found that one spec vs another functions better for the responsiveness of the thee?

I prefer to use percent, personally, for the reasons displayed here:
