[thelist] Font size problems with CSS & NN 4.73(win)

Nothing but problems this week... :-(

I'm using CSS on a major project for the first time, and I'm having some
issues with NN 4.7X

My CSS as included on every page is:

  Body, table, tr, td 	{
	FONT-FAMILY: 'Arial', 'Helvetica', sans-serif;
	FONT-SIZE: 10pt;

Now the problem is that when I want to make something size one font, it
works everywhere except NN 4.7X.  I was trying to do it like this:

<font size="1">Text here</font>
after that didn't work, I tried other sizes, but nothing happened.  All I
get is size 2 font.

Shouldn't I be able to do this?

I managed to fix it by adding a style="FONT-SIZE: 8pt;" to each font tag,
But I'd rather not need to do that for every other font size that I want.

There are other people working on this project, and making everybody stay
consistant just isn't going to happen.


If you absolutly must create straight text as a graphic, make sure that you
trim them perfectly.  Overall it will save you a bunch of disk space.

Most graphics programs will let you "Trim" the images exactly.
