That is a huge can of worms you are opening there. The web design world is
split when it comes to what units to use, although I think that there is a
consensus NOT to use points for screen rendering. Graphic designers seem to
prefer to use pixels for their precision, but accessibility-conscious types
will more than likely use ems or keywords.
I prefer to use ems. I have found that by applying a font size of 100% to
the BODY, subsequent ems-based rules behave reasonably consistently across
all modern browsers. Doing that will take care of the problems you
encountered with Internet Explorer.

Subject: [css-d] font size - what is the best approach?
Hi CSS people,
I've been looking for information about the best way to approach the
issue of font size, but there doesn't seem to be a great deal out there
and people are generally divided about which approach to use.
