If these font sizes are elastic, why is it so important to have all
browsers open up with 16px font? Overriding the end user's font size
preference forces the user to change the size of font on the web page to
match the preference already set in the browser.
This is not meant to be critical; I still struggle with font sizing in CSS.
On one hand, it drives me crazy when pages mess with my default font size.
My default font is comfortable for me to read. On the other, I know many
users who do not know how to set their font size and use the default fonts
