    Font size issue on Netscape 7.1

    Following the suggestion on http://www.alistapart.com/articles/elastic/, I have elastic font size schema of CSS. The result is more consistant between IE and Netscape if Netscape 7.1 responses the schema. I problem is the Netscape 7.1 doesn't always follow the schema. How to resolve this issue?

    The following is the code:

    body {
    ...
    font-family: Helvetica, Arial, san-serif;
    font-size: 80%; /* IE 6.0 */
    }
    html>body {font-size: 80%;} /* Mozilla, Opera */

    Why don't you just use font-size:0.8em;???

    I had the type of code before. The problem with the approach is that font size is bigger in Netscape (7.1) than in IE 5.0 (I test). Again, I follow the suggestion from the article, which shall be a good practise I think.
