What are the scalable pixels?

Scalable pixels (sp) serve the same function as density-independent pixels(dp), but for fonts. The default value of an sp is the same as the defualt value for a dp. The primary difference between an sp and a dp is that sp's preserve a user's font settings. Users who have larger text settings for accessibility will see font sizes match their text size preferences.

Acronym or abbreviation:
