Having a fixed font-size accross devices is not always a good idea. The key point is to get a readable font size and a comfortable line length in most viewports. Font Size and Line Length There are lots of different views on which is the best pixel font size, or which is the minimum readable size. There's much more to font sizing than it appears. As a general rule, use the largest font-size that doesn't look disproportionate and results in lines with 20 words or less (all words count).
