Erich Dollansky, and lo! it spake thus:

Well, this is one of those ongoing eternal flamewars, now isn't it? :p
px is better than pt on screen, because pt is interpreted differently
on some platforms.
I'm on the side of "don't use absolute units" myself. I *KNOW* how
big I want my fonts to be, which is why I have my browser set like I
do. That doesn't make it right for YOU. Size relative, so your
headers are a bit bigger, your asides a bit smaller, etc. Don't try
and tell me what size I want my fonts.
