Sorry for ranting :)
Containing the general layout so it stays on the screen is perhaps desirable (fixed-width tables, say).
But using css to abnegate the ability of the visitor to change text size is a disservice to the visually impaired (not to mention us old geezers who just need to bump the text size sometimes when we forget our reading glasses... lol).
Figure, too, that those who do run upscale on the text are pretty much used to the layout of a great many sites being less than lovely.
The fonts make them look like they are running at 800x600 instead of 1024x768 which is the actual resolution.
CSS cant control text size if the user changes the text size through the browser.
I have a similar problem with hyperlinks set to 10 pixels they will still increase and knock the rest of the page out no matter how i set the CSS.
At the end of the day the user can overide all kinds of settings ;)
