Hi all,

When you give the use an option on the site to increase or decrease font
sizes, are there any best practices for what elements on the page should
enlarge or shrink? also, are there any min / max font sizes recommended?

thanks,

jenny

Hi Jenny,

some of my colleagues at work have recently summarised the best
practice for text resizing on website - see the "Top Tip" section in
the link below:
