    Confusing - NOT using Values ??


    Here's something I ran into today, that I'd never seen before.

    Here's the page as it SHOULD be --

    http://www.globalmedical1.com/index_826.cfm

    with the paragraph text small enough not to expand the graphics, but I heard from a friend that on HIS browser (not sure how his settings were), it looked like THIS:

    http://www.globalmedical1.com/index_825.cfm
    http://www.globalmedical1.com/gmerror.jpg

    (To achieve the look for the file link, I gave it a <font size> command after the calling in the <div> property of the paragraph text. The image was actually how it looked.

    On his system, apparently, it didn't seem to pick up the CSS value I had set for the paragraph, which was

    .demo {
    font-family:tahoma;
    font-size: 8pt;
    color:061D71;
    }

    How can it make a font size of 8pt THAT big ?

    you can never force a font-size, only suggest.
    the user can always change the font-size that you have specified.

    so the right thing to do is to fix the layout so it won't be broken if the user prefere a large font-size.

    Re:


    Is there ever a situation wherein a file won't read/understand a CSS command/file ?

    It's not like not having Javascript or something.
    I'd think 8pt (or 8px) would be pretty uniform..

    8pt is too small. Default is 12pt.
