Are you sure you’re making the browser window wider than 1200 pixels? (That’s when it kicks in on The Session and in your Codepen.) It’s working for me in Firefox 76.0.1.

No, the CSS from by blog entry is applied to the :root element (and then everything cascades from there). In your example, the max-width: 70ch ensures that only the minimum size (100%) will ever be used.

Such a great book!

I allow Twitter, Medium, and Flickr to have copies but I want the orginals to be under a domain I control.

All of those other sites will disappear.

It’s the other way around, Altin. I’m posting on my website. What you read on Twitter is a copy (with a link back to the original).

After more than twenty years in the business, I have finally settled on the ideal font size.

It is this:

My current age, divided by two.

(It works at all stages of life.)

It is supported in Safari (although I think I may have uncovered a bug in Safari with my particular use case).
