Question
I want to make my Text Size easy for anybody to Read it on my WebPage.

But I know everybody sets thew Monitor to Display Font Size Diferant Sizeses.

And some people use TVs as a Monitor and just set Windows to Display Font as a % of a Size.

So if I use this code
font-size:300%;">

Am I right it will Display the Font Three time biger then the Normale Size?

Answer
Robert I don't think you want to set 300% as the font size.

I think the following will be helpful.  The W3c sets the guidelines for HTML.

It is not possible to set a font size that will accommodate every means of viewing a page.  The viewer, however, has the option to increase the zoom level of the page, if necessary.

You do want to st your pages to resize accordingly for small and large monitors.

The following is a tutorial on responsive design meaning your web page will work on all devices.
