That's because <FONT SIZE=5> isn't exactly the same in both browsers, nor is 
font-size: large. If you want it to be exactly the same in all browsers, 
dump the FONT tag and use pixels as unit in your style sheet.

Not sure, but I think it's the text-align: left in the style sheet that 
makes Netscape decide the SPAN is a block level element. Since it isn't 
necessary anyway (default is left) I advise you to remove it.
