Accessibility Checkpoint WCAG 2 1.4.4


Use relative rather than absolute units in FONT SIZE attributes.


Ideally you should CSS rules instead of FONT elements, If you must use FONT elements use relative sizes like SIZE=«+1» or SIZE=«-1» instead of absolute sizes like SIZE=«1» Text must be resizable to allow low-vision users to use a larger default font size.
