A Point is a unit of measurement that represents 1/72 of an inch.

A Pica is a unit that equals 12 points.

A Percentage is a unit of measurement that is relative to a parent element. For example, if the font size of a paragraph is 10 pixels, you can place a phrase inside the paragraph with a font size specified as 200%. The font size of the phrase becomes twice the font size of the paragraph, or 20 pixels.

An Em is a unit of measurement that is relative to the height of a parent element's font. For example, if the font size of a paragraph is 10 pixels, you can place a phrase inside the paragraph with a font size specified as 2 em. The font size of the phrase becomes twice the font size of the paragraph, or 20 pixels.

An Ex is a unit of measurement that is relative to the height of the lowercase letter x of the parent element's font. For example if the font size of a paragraph is 10 pixels, you can place a phrase inside the paragraph with a font size specified as 2 ex. The font size of the phrase becomes twice the font size of a lowercase letter x in the paragraph.
