Eric Meyer on browsers' handling of decimal pixels 

Eric Meyer made a test of how browsers handle an increasing size of text elements (nesting a load of <b> elements with a font-size of 1.04em in an element with a font-size of 10px), and enters a philosophical discussion of whether browsers should display the actually used font-size (that is, the rounded one they use for displaying) or the one they carry with them (unrounded).

I personally think Safari and Opera’s handling is the most correct (the computed value must be the one that the user can actually experience), but I have nothing to back that up with.

This is Simply Jonathan, a blog written by Jonathan Holst. It's mostly about technical topics (and mainly the Web at that), but an occasional post on clothing, sports, and general personal life topics can be found.

Jonathan Holst is a programmer, language enthusiast, sports fan, and appreciator of good design, living in Copenhagen, Denmark, Europe. He is also someone pretentious enough to call himself the 'author' of a blog. And talk about himself in the third person.
