I mentioned this in 
bug 233905 : Font setting should show unit and unit should be pixels, not
and today, latest version of Konqueror (version 4.10.1) and latest version of
Rekonq (version 2.2.1) still show font-size in pt unit and not px unit. It
should be in px unit and I have explained why.

What if we could provide you with a template that has an menu and honors the
100% Easy-2-Read Std ?

A small margin or padding in books and reviews contributes to legibility. It's
been like that for humans for over 2000 years for paged media.

Those nerds can certainly find the way to set their browser to display text in
their preferred font-size. Again, we propose not to set how big <h1> heading,
<h2> heading, etc.. are We propose to set medium font-size to 100% of what the
user has chosen/set in his/her browser settings.

Browser defaults (user agent stylesheet) helps as h1 is usually set to 2em, h2
is usually set to 1.5em, etc.. Most browsers now try to use Appendix D
IE8, IE9, IE10, Firefox and all webkit browsers (Chrome, Safari) in their user
agent stylesheet have h1 set to 2em, h2 set to 1.5em, etc...

No compromises required for nerds. All they have to do is set their user prefs
settings in their browser and a stylesheet that complies with the 100%
Easy-2-Read Std will honor their font-size preferences.
