  <p>The <a target="_blank" href="">em</a> unit is interesting.</p>
  <p>It takes the parent's font size and multiplies it by the value you give it.</p>
  <section class="example small-text">
    <p class="em">This text is 2em</p>
    <p class="match">This text is the same as the parent's font size. Which is 10px.</p>
  <p>Above, the parent's font size is 10px while the first paragraph's font size is 2em.</p>
  <p>This means the first paragraph's pixel font size is 20px.</p>
  <section class="example large-text">
    <p class="em">This text is 2em</p>
    <p class="match">This text is the same as the parent's font size. Which is 20px.</p>
  <p>But <code>em</code> can be used outside of sizing text.</p>
  <section class="example large-text">
    <div class="em-width"></div>
  <p>The rectangle above has its width set to 3em while its parent has a font size of 20px.</p>
  <p>Making the rectangle's pixel width 60px.</p>
  <p>Very cool. ☃️</p>
  <footer class="important">
    <a target="_blank" href="">!important</a>
