Controlling font size in Firefox and Opera?

P: n/a
Hello,

I have a footer at the end of each article in my blog at
http://www.usernomics.com/news/user-...sign-news.html .

The footer looks perfect in IE but has smaller text in Firefox and Opera.
For some reason, the CSS does not seem to be controlling the font size. The
CSS and HTML are below.

Does anyone know how I can get the CSS to control the Firefox and Opera
appearance?

Thanks,

Bob

Maybe. Maybe not. What happens when JavaScript is disabled/unavailable?

Server-side template and inclusion mechanisms are more reliable. See

Are you running into the minimum font size those browsers are configured to
use? The page tries to specify a font size smaller than the minumum font
size I've configured for my copy of Opera.

I am using the script that Feedburner offers. I'm not sure if anything else
will work for them. But I do see your point.

Yes, my setup for Opera and Firefox had minimum font sizes that were set at
6pt. When I changed them to 12pt it all worked.

Thanks a lot,

Bob
