Rem, em – length units in CSS

I must admit that I rarely used such units of length as rem and em so far. I usually used pixels (px), because somehow it was easier for me to associate what size a given element will have.

The rem and em units, however, have one advantage over pixels – they can be set in correlation to parent font size (em) or root font size, which most often is <html> elemet (rem). This gives the ability to manipulate sizes for many elements at once. The default root font value is usually 16px (but it depends on the browser).
