    Header font size


    I have a <h4> tag containing news titles, on my webpage.

    Problem is IE shows the font size to be much bigger than in FF.

    Can someone please tell me how I can ensure the same sized font, for header tags, in FF and IE?

    Font-sizes differ from browser-to-browser. You have to fix them to a common size and then, re-size them to a desired size.
    The below, -while not perfect, -does address this quite nicely.

    <style type="text/css">
    * {border:0; padding:0; margin:0;}/* Set everything to "zero" */
    p {font-size: 100%; line-height:1.0em; margin:16px 0 10px 0;}

    html, body {min-height:100%; height:101%; padding-bottom:25px;
    font:x-small Arial, Verdana, sans-serif;
    voice-family: "\"}\"";voice-family:inherit;
    font-size:small;/*for IE 5.5 */}
    html>body {font-size:small; height:auto;}/* Assist IE6 & less, 100% height */
    font-size: small; voice-family: "\"}\"";
    voice-family: inherit; font-size: medium;} /* Assist IE rendering height, keyword-font sizes, etc. */

    h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6 {font-family: 'times new roman', arial, verdana, helvetica, serif; background-color:none;
    font-style:normal; font-variant:normal; font-weight:normal; margin:14px 0 4px 10px;}
    h1{font-size: 1.93em;}
    h2{font-size: 1.72em;}
    h3{font-size: 1.52em;}
    h4{font-size: 1.42em;}
    h5{font-size: 1.32em;}
    h6{font-size: 1.21em;}
    I build for: Firefox and tweak for IE
