I've been developing a site with 2 css files - one for IE and one for Netscape browsers as I'm finding it the easiest way to make sites more accessible and still compliant with W3C validators.
I thought everything was groovy until I re-checked the site on Opera (which I stupidly hadn't done since content had been put up!). I've specified the font size for the body, td, p etc.... as 60% which is perfect in all browsers except Opera - in the preferences for Opera it says 'minimum font size = 6'. If I change this to 10 it works fine but feel this is cheating and most users will obviously have it set on the 'default' - is there a work around for this? I'm hoping someone out there must have come across this before?!
Thanks for any help you could give me....
60% is probably too small anyway but a lot depends on which font your using. For instance, other things being equal, Arial will look bigger than Times New Roman because the "x-height" (the height of an x) is bigger in Arial. So Arial at 60% may be readable but Times New Roman at 60% would not.
So my advice is: specify a group of compatible font-families, specify the size in ems and don't make it too small.
