I've surrounded some of my paragrpahs with this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <span style="font-size: small; ">
When I view it in Opera the test appears bigger. Is is not effect in the othe browsers which doesn't really matter by why is it bigger in Opera?

'It is actually a result of a bug fix in Opera. The bug (CORE-9793) was that font-size: small would increase font-size compared to default of some elements. To counter this, GMail (and other sites, like Amazon) set the font- size to x-small specifically for Opera. After the fix, Opera too applies x-small like instructed and you get tiny fonts. So it is Opera's fault for having the bug in the first place, but it has to be "fixed" by the sites.

Hope, helps. :)

Thanks. I'll just have to try to set to font to set value rather than something relative.
