There has been constant debate amongst myself and some of my other web loving friends as to the correct solution for cross browser and platform font sizing. For the longest time I swore that fonts in IE seemed a step smaller than the fonts in my beloved KHTML and Gecko based browsers. Finally I’ve found a story to confirm my suspicions. It would seem that internet explorer renders default text as text size small as opposed to medium as defined in the CSS-1 spec.
