A very large Oak was uprooted by the wind...It fell among some Reeds, which it thus addressed: "I wonder how you, who are so light and weak, are not entirely crushed by these strong winds." They replied, "You fight and content with the wind, and consequently you are destroyed; while we on the contrary bend before the last breath of air, and therefore remain unbroken, and escape.""The Oak and the Reeds," Aesop's Fables

The last paragraph prior to the code example states:

However the code itself usings 12px, not 16px. That line should actually read:
As a result, we need to set the span to have a font-size of .5em (12/24).
