    different hosts display different size font

    Could anyone explain why my font would appear a different size on two different hosts?. And only through firefox - in IE7 (according to IEtester) it looks the same on both.

    they use the same single css file, and the fonts (when set) are set with em's. In firefox, the font throughout the live site is smaller than the test site!.

    How does the server determine the font size ? And why is only firefox affected?

    Correction - tpishop.com looks just fine. But tpishop.co.uk - which is actually the same place - is smaller!

    Hi,

    I can't see a difference in Firefox on those two links above.

    Which version of Firefox are you having problems with?

    Can you attach a screenshot of each?
