I've merged the earlier "simple em support" work I did on my fork of the main branch, plus fixed some things such that this seems to be working well. Some details:

  • adds support for decimal values in dimensions (e.g., 55.5em)
  • properly grabs the base font size in Internet Explorer
  • accounts for base font size given in points, and converts to pixels (e.g., converts 12pt to 16px)
  • seems to work!

Hello! Thanks so much for this pull. It looks like a lot of similar changes made it into the commits from another pull too.

After a long break (sorry), we're back on track to land EM support. Issue 18 is where I'd like to track discussion of any outstanding issues with the em-support branch, so if you could please give respond.src.js in the em-support branch a test on your own sites, that'd be super helpful!

Code: https://github.com/scottjehl/Respond/blob/em-support/respond.src.js

Issue Tracking: #18
