Em values for font sizes and line spacing

Em values allows me to set relative values for font sizes and line spacing in a way that the line spacing is always relative and proportional to the font size. This is a great time saver.

Please take a look at Typecast, you can set it in px and/or em. Amazingly flexible.

    All of this. Also percentage-based line-height would be incredible to go with this.

    It would be also great to reflect that in design specs - this way by setting a rem base you could have all other values calculated automaically and the developers could see the exact rem value to put into CSS.

    It is crucial in responsive design to be able to use ems and percentage to identify size and line height. Potentially VW and VH as well. Ideally, it'd be nice to create designs with viewport change in mind so as not to leave it solely to the developer to decide how they are executed.
