Tesseract

If you’ve found your way here by accident, well done, because this page isn’t linked from anywhere else on the website! This is a playground, if you like. A list of various blocks and grouped blocks created for and with the WordPress Gutenberg editor.

It may not be problem-free. (That’s what a technical playground is for.)

The Tesseract, also called the Cube, was a crystalline cube-shaped containment vessel for the Space Stone, one of the six Infinity Stones that predate the universe and possess unlimited energy. It was used by various ancient civilizations before coming into Asgardian hands, kept inside Odin’s Vault. Eventually, it was brought to Earth and left in Tønsberg, where it was guarded by devout Asgardian worshipers.

    Font sizing for the web

    There are three main options for setting the size of text in the web using CSS. The font size can be set in “pixels”, in “EM”s or in ”REM”s. It can be a little difficult to understand where the differences lie, and which unit of measurement is correct.
