Pixels ARE relative (see the URL in my previous post), which I believe makes
them technically no better or worse to use than other relative units.

I personally use em's for font sizes since I wouldn't create a site without
using YUI's CSS tools <http://developer.yahoo.com/yui/>, but there's no way
around using px's for line heights unless you like your line height to
change every few lines.  (If you don't see it with the naked eye, measure
your em-based line heights in Photoshop.)
