Dave Sieber wrote me today about my MC++ FAQ saying: "The font sizes are hard-coded on your page, which really bothers me. Kind of defeats the purpose of HTML, which goes to great lengths to provide visual flexibility for the viewer. Try it: in IE, choose View | Text Size | Larger,
and notice that except for the welcome and copyright messages, nothing
changes!"

All I can say is: Guilty as charged! This is one issue I'm working on, as well as making both the MC++ FAQ and this weblog pages be XHTML compliant, but it's not as easy as I thought it would be. The fact that dealing with relative font sizes in IE is a pain in the butt doesn't help, specially with Verdana as the font...
