I read there is a way to solve the discrepancies between ie and other browsers in font size...
http://www.clagnut.com/blog/348/

html { font-size: 100%; /* IE hack */ }
body { font-size: 0.75em; }

But I don't remember the original source. I'll try it out.

Umm just use point (pt) sizes it works the same in Internet Exploder and Firefox. I know because I have to do it in my CSS. :)

Something like this

Code: [Select]
#your-selector
{
    font-size: 14pt;
}

That's what I do.

Edit: nevermind. I use font-size: small;

At the end of the css file change it from this:

Code: [Select]
* html body tt
{
font-size:10pt;
}

to this:

Code: [Select]
tt
{
font-size:small;
}

I was wrong with ignoring comments. I think that's only IE 5 for Mac. :o

But yes, it is fixed.

I used the
Code: [Select]
html { font-size:100%; } hack, and at the BOTTOM of the stylesheet, I added:
Code: [Select]
tt, .code { font-size:1em; }
