But I'm telling you it doesn't fit. I size my text up one notch and it
overflows. The mysterious person who told you this does not seem to
realize that the web is a dynamic, user-controlled medium, unlike
print. Granted, for most people, most of the time, the text is going to
fit, but I think your web team should be aware that this is not a
guarantee, but that there are improvements that can be made to improve
the chances of its happening more frequently.
