09:04
Convert absolute fonts sizes to relative sizes the easy way with this common CSS typography trick. Since most modern browsers default to a 16 pixel font size, declaring a 62.5% CSS font sizing attribute for the body changes this value to 10 pixels (16 x .625 = 10). The result is that 1em=10px, 1.5em=15px, etc.

(17/36) Making Elements Responsive While Maintaining Proportion
 
05:56
In this video we make our page elements respond to the browser's width by defining a percentage based width for our parent container, video and image element. Using the height:auto attribute, we allow the elements to be stretched relative to the user's browser while maintaining the proper dimensions for the image. Then we define a pixel-based max-width to our inherently unresponsive elements to make sure that they are not stretch behind their native dimensions, distorting their quality.
