Sets the font size of an element. Font-sizes can be specified by constants of xx-small, x-small, small, medium, large, x-large, xx-large or by units such as px, pt and em or percentages.
Browsers display font-sizes differently and many can override your settings. It is best to use values that can be resized by the browser and allow for this in your site design.
