I either use nothing, or I use the deprecated <font> tag. This may sounds
stupid, but I don't care about the fact it is deprecated, the fact is that
it's a simple and *working* solution. When "em", "%" or "pt" will work, I
will use them. In the mean time, I won't bother with this anymore (let me
add that I used to).
