As long as the default font size in the user's agent is such that
100% or 1em is equal to 16px.
This is far from given. For instance, it is not true if the agent is
IE and the text size is not set to medium. Of course many users do
not even realise they can change their font size, let alone do it,
but that's a pretty big assumption to base your designs on.
Anyhow, font sizing is holy war territory and has been pretty much
done to death on the list.
sums it all up. If anyone wants to add to it that would be great.
That is, if the wiki is working and lets anyone edit it.
