    Trying to streamline my stylesheets and was curious if anyone could tell me which font property is better (cross-platform, browser): pixels vs. points?

    Also, Has anyone found any bugs w/ Netscape 6 and CSS, especially for Macs?

    meztec...if you are worried about font issues, then your best bet for cross-browser viewing would be to use either em or pt.

    The W3 recommends using EM as it sidesteps the whole Mac/PC/Linux isse and bases the size of the font on the metrics of the font itself. Thus 1 EM (which stands for M space) is the default size and 2 em is twice the size etc.

    Using "em" as your size determinator allows your visitors to resize your text if they need to be able to read it as well. This is what I would recommend using.
