== Summary ==
A factor contributing to the legibility of fonts at different sizes is the relationship between &lt;span class=&quot;plainlinks&quot;&gt;[ &lt;span style=&quot;color:black;font-weight:normal; text-decoration:none!important; background:none!important; text-decoration:none;/*CITATION*/&quot;&gt;child carrier&lt;/span&gt;]&lt;/span&gt; <span class="plainlinks">[ <span style="color:black;font-weight:normal; text-decoration:none!important; background:none!important; text-decoration:none;/*CITATION*/">kid carrier</span>]</span> the height of the 'font-size' and the height of the font's x-height (the height of its lowercase letter 'x'.) The ratio between these two factors ('font-size' divided by x-height) is called a font's &amp;quot;"aspect value.&amp;quot; " If an aspect value ratio is large for a font, it is more likely to be legible at a given font-size than a font with a smaller aspect value.
The '''font-size-adjust''' property allows authors to specify the &amp;quot;"aspect value&amp;quot; " that they wish to maintain. It becomes helpful when a specified font is unavailable and the system needs hints to determine the most suitable substitute.
== Syntax ==
&amp;lt;<pre&amp;gt;> { font-size-adjust: number | none }
== Legal Values ==
== Usage Examples ==
Ext/Doc: { font-size-adjust: 0.58 }
In-Line: &amp;lt;<h5 STYLE=&amp;quot;"font-size-adjust: 0.58&amp;quot;&amp;gt;">text&amp;lt;</h5&amp;gt;>&amp;lt;</pre&amp;gt;>
