    Mac font sizes

    I've been given a site layout by out graphics designer to put together but she's using a Mac and me a PC. She's specified font sizes in points and think I'm right in saying that fonts on a Mac look bigger on a PC. So question is, if she's specified sizes like 11pt, 9pt etc how do I know what the PC equivalent is in px?

    Actually, you've got it backwards. The same font size on a Mac appears smaller than it does on a PC.

    I do my design work on a Mac, and I'm always boggled by how large the fonts are when I check pages on a PC.
