html and css example

Hi,

When I want to replace the old unit the size of a new, and when I prescaling the window size, rem is not precise. Examle below.

1px when converting to rem is invisible.

Firefox and IE10 scaling pretty good.


body {
font-size:62.5% /* ==> 10px */
}

div {
border: .1rem solid red /* ==> 1px */
}

@Zychu It's unclear what you mean by "prescaling the window size". Do you mean resizing the window or resizing the text by Command/CTRL +/-?

But I can confirm that this is indeed a bug. It seems to affect all webkit based browsers, Safari, iOS, Chrome, Opera, Android ect.

See the attached test-case: https://bugs.webkit.org/attachment.cgi?id=214434

This bug report seems unattended, meaning that no one is paying attention to comments. I therefore have created a new bug report #123012 to regain attention.
