fluid_gridsimgSaw this article today on relative font sizing using em units. Very nice. I’ve been using percentages for a while, but this seems a little more designer-friendly

Fluid Grids: “How awesome would it be if you could combine the aesthetic rigor and clarity of fixed-width, grid-based layouts with the device- and screen size independence and user-focused flexibility of fluid layouts? Completely awesome, that’s how awesome. And with a little cunning and a tad of easy math, ALA’s Ethan Marcotte gets it done. We smell a trend in the offing.”
