Font  Sizes

Font sizes should be set using relative measurements (in REM, EM or percentage units).
Font size must be adjustable by a visitor's Web browser; fixed font sizing is not permitted.

In general, the default size set by the Web browser (16 point) for paragraph text is the recommended minimum size.

Font Styles & Formatting (bold, italic and underline)

Bold (<strong>) and italics (<em>) formatting should be used to apply emphasis.
Bold and italic formatting should be used sparingly; typically no more than once complete sentence in any given paragraph should be formatted using bold or italic text.
Underline formatting may only be used to designate links.
