how many px to em?

Hi Moody,
It's not that simple to compare pixels to em's.
An em is the height of the elements font, so varies on different browsers but should always be relative to the font.
Pixels are an absolute measurement.

I remember a post about a tool for measuring pixels on the screen but can't seem to find it now

"the tool" Tony is reffering to is called "calipers" do a search on this forum with my user name and you will find that thread.... most probably its in the off topic section itself.
