Resizing Text in Fluid Grid Layouts

Jan 26, 2013 11:11 AM

I'm new to Fluid Grids, and have got the fluid div's resizing properly across the different devices, however when I try to set font sizes they don't resize automatically, I know I can set the font sizes manually in CSS for each device but this is not always sutable, for example I have a div with a background colour and the iv is filled with a mission statement,  however as the div expands the text gets smaller and doesnt have the same impact, how can I set the fonts to size up automatically to fill the div, can this be done with percentages and what is the relation of the percentage in the font size to the size of the div and text, thanks in advance

    I use a separate style sheet for content styles and add media queries near the bottom for device specific rules (mobile, tablet, desktop).

    Browser default = 100%. Depending on your browser's preference settings, 100% usually = 1em or 16px.
