    In my earlier post I showed using font-size:200 to correspond with your
    size="2".
    This should actually be font-weight.

    thank you. I was trying to show how the poster could achieve the same
    results in css with what he wanted.
    font-weight or font-size is proper, just need to know which value works.

    Oh my. Size in a font element corresponds to font-size in CSS, though with
    different units.

    As usual you are totally wrong Bullis. You can't even correct your own
    stupid mistakes without making even bigger stupid mistakes.

    Please do not give *ANY* further advice relating to CSS. You obviously have
    absolutely no bloody clue.

    > http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_font.asp


    And don't quote that place as a source of information. It's full of
    mistakes, although they are not as stupendously bad as yours.

    Both properties "work". Only *one* of them works to set the font *size*. See
    if you can figure out which one it is.

    When I first started lurking in this ng, I thought the others were being nasty
    and mean when they referred to you as "Richard the Stoopid".

    I no longer think that.

    What a dipshit you are.
    Size="2" refers to the 9 levels of text size found in the drop down file
    menu list of the browser. You know where it asks if you want the text
    larger, smaller, etc?
    "Size" could care less what the actual font size is.

    Font-size, however, is more specific. That will determine how the actual
    text is displayed.

    I really did not want to get into this ridiculous thread, but this is
    something I cannot ignore.

    Please, please learn more about CSS before giving advice, because almost
    all of your advice has been wrong.

    Regarding the FONT SIZE attribute: the HTML spec says that there are 7
    levels, not 8 or 9, and that some browsers might not render all 7 sizes:
    see section 15.2.2 of the HTML 4.01 spec.

    Regarding the FONT SIZE attribute: 3 is supposed to correspond to
    font-size:medium, though Internet Explorer implemented this wrongly for
    a long time. See section 15.7 of the CSS 2.1 spec.

    Regarding the CSS font-size property: you said that font-size is more
    specific than the HTML's FONT SIZE values, but this depends on a lot of
    factors. If you use font-size:medium, for example, this is supposed to
    match HTML's FONT SIZE=3, which is neither more nor less specific. If,
    on the other hand, you specify sizes in pizels, points, picas, etc., the
    sizes might *appear* to be more specific, however, the actual sizes
    rendered can be affected by factors such as zooming and minimum font
    sizes. A common problem with people who design for Internet Explorer,
    for example, is that they assume that sizes such as font-size:12px will
    set a fixed, specific font size -- perhaps this is what you mean by
    "specific" -- however, zooming can change this, so that actual sizes
    rendered may be more or less than 12px, and this can result in all kinds
    of rendering problems which users of old versions of Internet Explorer
    will rarely see, but which users of better browsers will often see.
    Finally, remember that all CSS rules are suggestions, and browsers can
    and do ignore the suggestions, e.g. for accessibility reasons.

    Again, you should learn HTML and CSS better, because your advice has
    shown that your knowledge is abymally wrong. One useful thing for you
    to do would be to validate all of your code -- which you should be doing
    anyway -- for if you had validated the faulty HTML and CSS which you
    have been offering, the validators would have pointed out your errors,
    and you could have ruminated over the error messages and been able to
    correct your defects. You might even learn something by using the
    validators, though perhaps I am being overly optimistic.

    Surely time to stop this one against Richard? This is alt.html,
    after all!

    What do you expect a bloke to do when rounded on? Where he can't
    do what any self respecting truckie would do: that is grab a
    handy iron bar from the driver's cabin and ward off his
    attackers.

    Perhaps he was having a bad day, it should generally be
    sufficient to correct his mistakes. We all make them and the
    pleasures of correcting people should be sufficient joy.

    I say unto you all, do not make a far bigger mistake than
    Richard. Beyond the Gates of St Peter's, there Richard will be,
    his minor mistakes forgiven in the The Big Scheme of Things,
    swaning it up, among heavenly virgins, spent German and Belgium
    beer stubbies around, half empty Black Label whiskey bottles,
    Portuguese food and other types laid out in sumptuous spreads...

    But, back at the Gates themselves, here will be a big crowd held
    up, tangled in bureaucratic negotiations, many trying very hard
    to save more than their faces.

    "Sure", one heavenly official will be saying, "correcting a
    person's mistakes, even taking pleasure in it is one thing,
    but... the *level* of vituperation directed needs to have been
    watched carefully...". He then waves his arm in the direction of
    a set of concrete seats where there is a cold wind blowing and
    light rain falling, even the occasional hailstone with a "I am
    afraid we have to take a closer look at this. Please go sit over
    there for a while".
