It's bitter, but I agree... And I hope the Mac community will soon get
their "bugfix, too...
I just finished a couple simple pages for the online edition of a
medical magazine, and they were so _easy_ to write, simple and
beautiful HTML, good css formatting; hardly any tables and ugly stuff!
They looked really cool in IE, on big and small screen; when I checked
them in NS, I had to fumble around just a bit.
Then I was warned that the magazine guys who'd check my work all had
Macs, and I double-checked the pages on a friend's Mac. I'm glad I did
it, but I almost went nuts! <h2> and some text were so tiny You
couldn't read them! I had heard of the problem of smaller font sizes
on Macs and had deliberately chosen not-so small sizes, but no use; I
had to increase the font sizes in the style sheet so much that the
types looked less cool on the PC-platform (which is the platform most
of the magazine's readers will use).
Is there a slicker solution for this? I've seen 2 different
stylesheets being used for every platform, but how do I integrate
