This is not an answer to your question. It is simply an observation-- 
nothing more, nothing less. Put IE in 'accessibility mode.' Check only 
the box that reads: 'ignore font sizes specified' (or something like 
that).View your page at all five text-settings. Regardless of the fact 
that the content column may be under the navigation bar(except at 
text-size 'smallest'), compare the font-sizes on your page (at all five 
settings) with a site whose fonts are known to be set at default (at all 
five settings).
I'm not sure what, if anything, this has to do with CSS. But it sure 
beats boredom at 2a.
