What a Difference a Font size Can Make in a Web Page
A word about Web Page Uniformity--or the lack there of: 

One of the pesky problems with  ~/ .html, is the fact that the same page viewed by different folks' Browsers don't necessarily look the same. 
This can be for several reasons: 
Which Browser one is using, or the Browser's version. 
And, what Font Size the Browser is Set to!    (Preferences) 

One popular solution, is to substitute ~ .gif images of the text where the author desires uniformity. Of course, this initially slows the page. 

Another solution is the use of Dynamic Fonts. This is where a Page requires a specific Font Set which must be loaded into the Browser, either from one's local HD or the server. As with the ~ .gif solution, it takes time; also as one scrolls the page there is a definite latency. 

I have chosen to use Standard Text for my pages. There are enough Images, with their attendant overhead, without adding even more. 
 

The following Screen Shots may help to Illustrate this point.
HINT:To Shrink text use the Ctrl + [  keys; to Enlarge text use the Ctrl + ]  keys.
Browser is Set to:  800 X 600 Screen, Variable Width Font,  Size = 8
 
Browser is Set to:  800 X 600 Screen, Variable Width Font,  Size = 10
 
 And, to Beat this point to Death-->
Browser is Set to:  800 X 600 Screen, Variable Width Font,  Size = 16
