Timothy, your counter-points seem to be as subjective as mine.

I develop on a Mac and test on PC's too... various browsers, of course.

I find px and pt to be the most reliable units. I generally use px for
screen styles and pt for printer style sheets.

I do not size text below 10px because of the IE/Windows resizing issue,
and if IE/Windows decides to catch up with the text-zooming bandwagon,
then cheer will be heard throughout the land!
