erm, that depends on the container... if you have the <font> in any 
of the tags you've listed above (like the <body>, which you clearly 
do), it should stay at 10pt...  CSS should override <font> tags...

to get around this, try:

.small	{ font-size : 10px ; }

<font size="1" class="small">foo</font>

now it should work for you...

btw, note that i use px over pt... pt. is a print unit of measurement, 
and this ain't print...
