This is true. The CSS spec says that percentages are relative
to the parent element's font size .

I *thought* that em's were the width of the letter "m" in
a font, but the spec says that it's equal to the height of
the elements font , so what do I know? It makes sense,
though, that ems are "m"s, especially when exs are "x"s.
Also, "IE" is not necessarily what you
might think of as being "IE" because the Mac version does
things that the W95 version doesn't; I've noticed that
em is one of those things.
