    Very strange.. I'd advise you set an absolute font-size on your body, and use the relative font sizes for everything else. I'm not sure why this particular symptom is coming up, however, except that perhaps the two are being sent under different mime types that for some reason yield different font sizes.

    Thanks for the advice. I found the problem. Someone pointed to this in the head:
    Code:
    <strong></strong><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC
    Don't know how the <stong> got there but with it removed everything was normal!

    Your browser went into quirks mode with something before the DOCTYPE.. If I remember correctly, in IE6 only. As a result of qirksmode, your font got abnormally enlarged. Thats why.

    See here for more. (The thing about IE6 if something precedes the doctype is also on there.)
    Note on code: If I give code, please note that it is simply sample code to demonstrate an effect. It is not meant to be used as-is; that is the programmer's job. I am not responsible to give you support or be held liable for anything that happens when using my code.
