ahhh... my font resizing tool... works independent of <font> tags, 
although can easily be coded to include them with a global variable 
(just never got around to doing it, and now that i don't use <font> 
on my site, it seemed kinda pointless):

good question... if it degrades to nothing, i'd just use it, but if it 
involves displaying stuff that otherwise shouldn't display, you're 
talking a bit higher level here...

in my tutorial, i use some basic browser checking to see if the user 
has a >=4.x browser, so there's no CSS trickery there... sorry...
