There is no difference between the 2 OS.
Of course, using Owen's method, the font-size will depend on the user's
default setting. Assume the user has set his/her defaults to 50px in
the browser, the text of your pages will look bigger then if a user set
the font-size to, say, 16px (medium in IE6win).
I had a look at your pages, and the size is similar to what is shown in
your screenshot (Moz 1.4a, Chimera, Safari, IE5.x), OS X and OS 9.
