Can't get my font size bigger than .9em?

Aug 6, 2012 5:17 PM

I'm using some CSS in an external sheet to control some tagline text and I am trying to make the text bigger, though when I increase the font size to values larger than .9em it seems to make the text smaller?

 

#tagline {

          margin: 1px 0 15px 10px;

          font-size: .9em;

          letter-spacing: 0.6em;

          font-weight: bold;

 

1. What font size is larger than .9em?

2. Is there a heavier bold weight that I can use here?

 

Thanks!

    Anything greater than 0.9em e.g. 1em, 2em etc

    Font weights can be specified in words (bold, bolder) or numbers (100 through to 900).

    Just be aware that most browsers do not support all of the numeric font-weights.  In fact I've only ever seen those numeric weights equivalent to 'normal' and 'bold' supported (100 and 600, respectively - I think).
