Well actually, relative font sizing works would be 'larger' and
'smaller', which would take into account what fonts are actually
available.  Specifying the fonts with percentages or em often ends up at
a font size that is not available and must be scaled, which can look
really bad.  But before I make a mess by trying to explain it, search

css relative font sizes -w3schools

I actually don't assign sizes in my own CSS and rely on the default
sizes the browser delivers.  That may be too chancy for you since the
defaults are bad in several older browsers, but it works well enough
with all the modern ones.

Sans-serif uses whatever the user has specified to be used for this
font.  To me, Arial looks ugly and I'm using a different font there;
I've also replaced serif with the same font because I've yet to find a
website that actually reads better with a serif font.  Finally, I've
also locked my fonts so I don't get overruled by some webdesigners idea
of "nice-looking" and "readable" (which may well be true on their
computer).  :-)

BTW, "sans" is not a generic font family and might actually return a
(pixel?) font installed on the system.  Last but not least, font
families should be quoted and generic families not, e.g.:

font: "Georgia", sans-serif;
font-size: medium; /* absolute specification decided by UA, user preference */
