I got this statement form PDF article on the web
" The legibility of a font is generally less dependent upon the size of the font, than on the value of its x-height. The aspect value of a font is the font-size divided by the x-height. The higher this number, the more likely it is that a font will be legible when
the font is a small size. The lower the aspect value, the more likely it is that the font will become illegible as it is shrunk. "
I could not understand what do we mean by fontsize here..I mean whats the fontsize when we talk of a font?
