I guess I don't see who you will alienate if you don't set things. I
also guess I don't see the point of setting things. The people who are using
the default are probably using Arial, which seems like a perfectly fine font
to me. And absolute sizes mean different things on different machines, so
you don't want to set the size. Also, since you know a certain number of
people have their browsers set to ignore your settings, you need to design
your page so that those people will see a readable page. So, what will using
FONT tags accomplish? Anyone who has really weird settings has probably set
them that way deliberately. If you set really weird settings, those people
who are ignoring your settings will not see the web page you intended.
I'm not trying to be difficult. I'm just wondering if there is
something I am not understanding.
