I would like to propose a new "auto" value for the "font-size"
property.  When set the broswer would try to automatically set the
font-size, based on the element width, margins and padding ( (e.g.
width: 50em; margin: 1em; padding: 1em).

A javascript simulation of the desired behaviour is available at
