    i use 0.9em to set font sizes in ie on the desktop
    and it works fine.

    on the laptop, the same page the font sizes are markedly
    different and some fonts that should be smaller are

    both using ie.

    any explanation?

  2. ...but is 10% smaller than my default size. You should write your pages
    for your visitors, not for yourself.
    I'd bet that the two IE's are set at different user prefs. One might
    be "Medium" and the other "Smaller" on the text size menu.

    Set your font to 100% (instead of em, which IE sometimes has a problem
    displaying correctly), and then adjust your own text size to what you
    like, and I'll do the same.

  3. IE has a problem with .em specified font-sizes, making them either gigantic
    or tiny when resized. To avoid this problem, and achieve the effect you were
    looking for, use font-size: 90%; as opposed to font-size: .9em;

    Hope that helps,

  4. But not for default text size, please. If you're not happy with the size
    of default text on your browser, adjust your browser, not your web page.

    With neither quill nor qualm, ppcguy quothed:
    The laptop becomes aroused when you play with its fonts.
