I'll usually set my font-sizes in units of 'pt', but this gave me weird results when I increased my monitor's DPI from 96 to 120 (as all the fonts were too small in my HD wide-screen monitor, I increased it). I was doing some research on this and I came across this article, this article clearly explains the right unit to use while developing websites. Though this article says percent (%) is the best, I have used 'px', as it gave me consistent results in IE, Mozilla and Chrome.
