    MAC only hack possible?

    Is it possible to hack your CSS just for MAC regardless of browser? I have a problem regarding a font-size issue which is too small on the mac but perfect on PC. How do you get around this problem?

    Cheers

    By using keywords for font sizes, perhaps? Or at least percents.

    But are there different keywords for MAC and PC? Percentages are certainly read in the same way for both.

    Both keywords and percentages relate to the font size that the user has stated that he or she prefers (i.e., the browser default). In theory, you should never go below 100%, but that doesn't work in real life. Also, it depends on the font face (which is another thing you don't have any real control over).

    Browsers are supposed to guarantee that fonts specified with absolute keywords (xx-small, ..., xx-large) never get too small to be 'legible', i.e., that the size in pixels won't be so small that the characters are distorted.
