why does firefox does not inherit font-styles via CSS?

Dear Group,

I recently experienced a strange behaviour on firefox 0.9.2 (OS: winxp
prof. SP1): the div.Footnote (see code on
http://tomasio.laudatio.com/jobs/Cla...stylesheet.css )
is rendered on font-size: 0.8em; although following the CSS 2.1 defs
it should inherit the font-size of the parent element thus resulting
in 0.6 em font-size. on MSIE 6 it renders in the correct site. this
occurs on all of the websites of
http://tomasio.laudatio.com/jobs/Claudia/Website/
except
http://tomasio.laudatio.com/jobs/Cla...ed_beauty.html
..
does anyone has an idea whats happening here?

TIA,
--
kind regards,
tomasio

No text at all on that page so can't be relevant to this problem.

Your div.footer only contains text that is linked. And you have the
style div.Footer a:link {font-size: larger;} in your CSS.
So the text size is 0.8 * 0.8 * larger which is probably close to just
0.8. Yep, when I click on the link the text gets smaller.
