I have a webpage which has a fixed layout.
It was built using standard size of 1280×800.
Since it doesn’t need to be mobile compatible, and not accessed by the public, it was built using fixed size elements.
The problem is, I need it to scale automatically according to browser size.
I managed to do it with the viewport metatag, but that works only for mobile browser (which I do not need…)
e.g. How can the page display correctly, when opened in Chrome on a desktop with 1024×768 resolution, without the need to manually zoom out in the browser?
px with a
vw based on the ratio of the width to the size at 1280×800.
So if you had a div with
width: 1280px you would replace it with
font-size on the body in this way to get the text to scale, and use
rem to size larger text.
If your font size was 16 at 1280×800, then you would want
