The following have yielded no results in overriding the default...
Essentially at best all I can do is apply white-space: nowrap; which prevents the text from overflowing. It's still difficult to read.
Obviously changing the default setting in the browser is completely unacceptable: you can't expect your visitors to adjust their personal preferences just for your site.
However in contrast this simply is an unacceptable scenario. It wouldn't be an issue if the default minimum size were reasonable or if it could be overridden using !important.
Are all KDE users blind or something? Suggestions?
Firefox has the same feature though. I have my minimum font size set to 16px because my screen resolution is huge. Some users on 800x600 screens will think 14px is big, but for those on 2048x1536, even 16px will be small to them. I do not want my eyes strained.
You should never have to force a user to shrink their font sizes. Your text containers should always be scalable, by leaving them with default sizes, or if you must supply a width/height, use EMs, which scale with the text size.
