Hi all.

I am playing with html and css.  I don't (yet) have a working site,
I'm just trying to build a working, basic template I can use for a
couple of ideas I have.

I recall reading a discussion in a newsgroup in the past that came to
the conclusion that the best way to use font sizes with css was to use
percentages.  Is that still the case?  If so, how does one implement

To use percentages one needs a starting point to work from.  How is
this defined?

I have googled for this and found so many conflicting sites, all
showing differing reasoning for reccomending different ideas.  But not
one showing a simple idiots guide, so far.
