What Is REM font size?

According to the W3C spec the definition for one rem unit is: Equal to the computed value of font-size on the root element. This means that 1rem equals the font size of the html element (which for most browsers has a default value of 16px).

How do I set REM size?

rem values are relative to the root html element, not to the parent element. That is, If font-size of the root element is 16px then 1 rem = 16px for all elements. If font-size is not explicitly defined in root element then 1rem will be equal to the default font-size provided by the browser (usually 16px).

What is the difference between the font size units em and REM?

rem and em units are computed into pixel values by the browser, based on font sizes in your design. em units are based on the font size of the element they’re used on. rem units are based on the font size of the html element. Don’t use em or rem if scaling would unavoidably cause a layout element to break.
