    How come my font sizes look smaller in Safari & Google Chrome & IE than they do in FireFox?

    http://mattjolsen.blogspot.com

    I've customized most of the typography in the blog's CSS, but don't understand why there are such differences. Perhaps my font settings in FF are off?

    Is FF wrong or are the other browsers wrong?

    -edit- the font sizes exhibit the same issue for Google.com

    If you're referring to header tags, make sure to reset them, or have them default to a specific font size. If it's just regular text, make sure you have the fonts installed.

    I've never noticed a difference (with the exception of header tags).

    no, I mean all of the fonts, not just those with header tags. they're all slightly larger in firefox .

    does this issue show up for anyone else?

    I didn't know if it was some sort of CSS syntax issue or just my browser

    I don't see a difference. Maybe a slighty margin/padding issue with your lists or paragraphs that's causing several lines to break.

    there's definitely differences in the font sizes, especially when you look at the right column

    I guess the issue is that I want to make all of the fonts a little larger, but FireFox is displaying them how I want them to look. So is FireFox rendering the css correctly, or are all of the other browsers? And how do I make them look the same?
