My suggestion is to not use explicit size settings at all. Most
people's browsers have settings that let them specify a default font
size that's comfortable for them. If you want to make a bit of text
larger for emphasis, you can use a relative sizing argument, which
would look like <font size="+1">.

To your credit, you set the font too large -- most sites that
manipulate the font size make the fonts too small.

That's a great reason to just leave the defaults well enough
alone. :^)

Looks much better, thanks for listening to my well-meaning, if
tactless, suggestions...
