Yes - I certainly do! However, I don't like the idea that I should always
default to 100% of whatever the programmers of each individual browser have
decided is their default font size. I'm a purist, but that's going too far.
As we all know, many of the differences between browser display are simply
mistakes. And while a good design should be fluid, it should also be able
to display what was intended. It shouldn't be a slave to the whims of
browser programmers.

But what I really want to know right now is Font styling that has nothing
to do with CSS. I like CSS, but I don't have a grasp on it yet and need to
do something in straight HTML right now. Suggestions?
