Description

20 years ago
This is a meta (tracking) bug to track the problem of text in <font size="1"> 
tags renders slightly bigger in Mozilla than it does in Netscape 4 and IE.

For example:
   <font size=1> A </font>
The "A" will be about 1px bigger in Moz than in Nav4.

This should be fixed by a combination of the implementation of Todd's algorithm
for font sizes (bug 18136) and the changing of the font size rounding code (bug
24005). Adding those dependencies. Also ccing various interested parties.

This should possibly be nominated for beta1, but since it will be fixed by 
fixing 18136 and/or 24005, and those are both beta1 already, I won't bother.
Depends on: 18136, 24005

Will try to look to check this is indeed fixed within the next few hours. It
looks fixed based on a quick comparison, but I need to do some pixel-for-pixel
work first.

Test case is fixed (screenshot coming up).
<font> in dup bug 21920 is now fixed.
layout of 18756 is now identical to IE's.
The fonts in 14033 are now identical too.

Marking WORKSFORME. This was fixed by the work on bug 18136 and bug 24005.

What can I say. I have this project report to write, and spending a few minutes
in Corel Photo-Paint is infinitely more enjoyable, so... ;-)
