Ladies and gentleman,
There simply is no debate. Either you'll adopt the recommendations found
here (the Eurpoeans have their equivalent):
or you don't.
From http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10-CSS-TECHS/ is this bit of wisdom:
* Use the "em" unit to set font sizes.
* Use relative length units and percentages. CSS allows you to use relative
units even in absolute positioning. Thus, you may position an image to be
offset by "3em" from the top of its containing element. This is a fixed
distance, but is relative to the current font size, so it scales nicely.
* Only use absolute length units when the physical characteristics of the
output medium are known, such as bitmap images.
I'm sorry but if you don't get accessiblity, then you don't get what the web
is. Act responsibly, dammit.
