Em fonts, Large in some people's IE??

Sent by Jade True on 17 March 2006 16:04

Thanks David,

I replied to you only earlier, but I want to reply to the list as  
well. I fixed the issue I think your were seeing, it was becuase I  
styled some H1 tags, so when ignore font sizes is checked, it was  
using the usual h1 size. I've fixed that now, but my client is still  
seeing LARGE fonts at, and when she goes to my site  
at, they are large for her as well.
