looks like Felix wrote to Debbie offlist :
>> Browser makers provide users with a preference adjustment etc....
<major rant snipped>
Seems like any request to this list (or Evolt) regarding any web site
with a url is an excuse for Felix to send an "off-list" reply
ranting about font-size.
Setting a font-size or not setting a font-size is a choice *you* make.
As others have said, the wiki has good info on the why's and
wherefore's of font-size selection.
Is it just me and Debbie or has everyone had a rant from Felix about
setting font sizes?
Happy New Year !
 off list because he'd be unsubscribed for doing it on list no doubt...
