Okay, but 11px/16px is 0.6875 not .76.
If B.K. meant 11pt (and not 11px) the base font size should be about 0.92 em.

Francois, is .76 fairly arbitrary or did you calculate it somehow?  (If the latter, please provide the math.)

My appreciation to the several people trying to help me on and off the list.  This is getting off topic and clearly my original post did not make it obvious where my confusion lay.  I understand all about dpi, px, pt, em, etc., thanks.
