  for (let entry of entries) {
    if(entry.contentBoxSize) {
      // Checking for chrome as using a non-standard array
      if (entry.contentBoxSize[0]) {
        h1Elem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1.5, entry.contentBoxSize[0].inlineSize/200) + 'rem';
        pElem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1, entry.contentBoxSize[0].inlineSize/600) + 'rem';
      } else {
        h1Elem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1.5, entry.contentBoxSize.inlineSize/200) + 'rem';
        pElem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1, entry.contentBoxSize.inlineSize/600) + 'rem';
      }
    } else {
      h1Elem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1.5, entry.contentRect.width/200) + 'rem';
      pElem.style.fontSize = Math.max(1, entry.contentRect.width/600) + 'rem';
    }
  }
  console.log('Size changed');
});

resizeObserver.observe(divElem);

checkbox.addEventListener('change', () => {
  if(checkbox.checked) {
    resizeObserver.observe(divElem);
  } else {
    resizeObserver.unobserve(divElem);
  }
});
