For one thing, that's not a very common font. Netscape may be falling back to 
the default.

For annother, Windows by default assumes that ALL monitors are 72 DPI, 
regardless of the monitor size or resolution. (72 DPI is close for 14" 
monitors at 640x480, but little else)

Netscape 7 (and Mozilla) can use the system setting, preset DPI, or a custom 
setting. Try Edit->Preferences->Appearance->Fonts. You should find at the 
bottom A "Display Resolution:" select box.   Set it to 72 DPI for the same 
size fonts as IE displays, or  use "Other..." to set the correct resolution 
and have correct font sizes, which may not be the same as IE displays.
