Hi All,

What is the best CSS unit (measurement value) to use today (given that users are increasingly engaging with websites on mobile devices (e.g. iPhones, Android phones)? I guess the follow-on question is, can one build a website using one measurement value, or should one use a combination of values?

Any advice or opinion is welcomed.

Warm regards,


Context to Question
See - CSS Units

I am new to website design and just finished reading Build Your Own Web Site the Right Way. I'm a 'newbie' as Ian Lloyd would have me describe myself. I understand that web design for mobile technology has advanced a great deal since the book was published (second edition - November 2008). I couldn't help but wonder if the proliferation of web use on mobile devices has prompted a trend towards the use of a particular CSS unit (measurement value).

I ask because I'm keen to start my web site building on the right foot.
