    Font size

    I really like the font used on SitePoint.com, and I realised that it is 12.5 pt Verdana. However, I don't believe that 12.5 pt is possible in CSS, so what is the alternative, IF there is an alternative, of course.

    It is very possible, but using point for screen display might not be your best solution. Point does well for print, not for screen.

    You can use CSS like this for a verdana 12.5 point:
    Code:
    p {font-family: verdana; font-size: 12.5 pt;}
    Sitepoint seem to use a variety of font-sizes, based on em, % and px. I also think the sitepoint site provides a different stylesheet depending on browser.
    The default font they use for normal text seems to be 'small Verdana'.
