Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the default "size" 100% from the get go?
Second, are we not dealing with much higher screen resolutions than the "old days"? Do we not have zoom capability built into every browser... and most are using that because the "webmaster make it pretty default font size is too small"?
That said, I PERSONALLY don't code for picture perfect placement. If I want that I provide a PDF or an image. HOWEVER, I do want reasonable font variations between body, headers, sub-headers, "small print" and use ems to suggest that. And if one has used zoom in the browser display and forgot to reset that might be part of the display problem.
