How to reduce or enlarge font sizes

Editors should avoid manually inserting large and small font sizes into prose. Increased and decreased font size should primarily be produced through automated facilities such as headings or through carefully designed templates.

Font size templates
Template Size Semantics Sample
{{small}} 85% <small> HHHHH
{{smaller}} 90% none HHHHH
{{midsize}} 92% none HHHHH
none 100% none HHHHH
{{larger}} 110% none HHHHH
{{big}} 120% none HHHHH
{{large}} large none HHHHH
{{huge}} 180% none HHHHH
{{resize}} 90% default none HHHHH
