  • hipertipo: After lots of trial-and-error, I have settled with 125 em units per pixel and variable em square for PPEM-specific #webfonts. #standards
  • hipertipo: FontStruct for ex. uses variable pixel size (powers of 2) and fixed em square (2048 units). Works too, but pixel size varies between fonts.
  • hipertipo: (Correcting the correction, FontStructions have an em square of *1024* units.)
