KISS is Never a Bad Thing

Consumed => “Readable, Fluid Type With Basic CSS Smarts” by Val Head on TypeCast.

=> My value add (i.e., left a comment)…

Good stuff Val. Thanks! KISS is never a bad thing, eh?

re: “Find your max-width for comfortable reading length”

Mind if I pseudo-translate a bit and add: (or put another way, just because you have large and extra large screen width available doesn’t mean you have to use it.)

What’s nice about your approach / solution is that it aims to keep the UX consistent across all devices. Personally, I find it somewhat ironic that we’re returning to a layout / design experience that is a lot closer to traditional books (than it is to the TMI-esque visual cluster f*ck we’ve been subjecting ourselves to all these years).

Again, thanks.

p.s. What are your thoughts on rem vs em? Perhaps you can add a paragraph on that above?
