What does that font size look like in a separate browser window?

It's not as easy to do in ff as in Konqueror/Safari and that probably messes
with other sites.

What I should have said is "if you create a new HTML file with an element with the above style" then do you see the same miniature font size?

The element style is applied to a TD from the code that I inspected. There was a parent element with font-size small so I'm wondering of there's some sort of doubling of effect rather than a replacement of the size.

That said, I've never really liked putting font-size: small or explicit point sizes in stulesheets since invariably different browsers have different ways of doing it.

In Safari's case, there is a minimum display font size (separately) for fixed-width and variable width fonts - so it may be that is kicking in and make it artificially bigger on Safari.
