    different font sizes for IE and FF

    Hi,

    sorry if this has been covered, but I searched and couldn't find it... and I've googled and none of the hacks seem to work...

    is there some way to get my navbar here to have the same font size in IE (and Chrome) and FF? Seems to me that FF makes it 1 px bigger.

    ... and (if you're browsing in IE7) is the top of the map really covering the bottom part of the div above it, or is that just IE8's "compatibility mode" playing tricks on me?

    thanks for any suggestions...

    Hello xelawho,
    I can't see any difference, #nav2 links look like 12px Arial to me. 13px is a pretty noticable difference too.
    11px Arial on your #right links.

    I looked in what I have, FF4 and IE8...

    The formulation of fonts for PC and Mac are slightly different. I've noticed the line wraps are different.

    thanks for your input, people.

    Next time, before I start freaking out about this, I'm going to make sure I reset FF's text zoom

    I promise.
