Setting the value of REM for all the properties in CSS

0 votes

I would like to use rem everywhere (read for all the possible properties) in my site. However, using the default rem - px conversion rate isn't quite intuitive :

10px = 0.625rem
12px = 0.75rem
14px = 0.875rem
16px = 1rem (base)
18px = 1.125rem
20px = 1.25rem
24px = 1.5rem
30px = 1.875rem
32px = 2rem

Therefore, I'm setting the font size to 1rem = 10px using the HTML syntax font-size: 62.5 percent ;. But what if I also want to set the margin, padding, border, etc. to that conversion rate?

We've covered this in comments, but essentially the answer is to set the base font size to 10px rather than 62.5%.

html { font-size: 10px; }

Now, all your rem values work from 1rem = 10px. which mean your calculations actually got a lot simpler.

  • 1.5rem = 15px
  • 2rem = 20px

...and so on.

Now margin: 1rem really does mean margin: 10px.
