Hi Katie

We had the same problem and found that the only way to ensure consistency
between IE and Netscape was to use the 'Size=x' option in the <Font>
settings rather than specific font sizes.

Subject:  [xsl] Netscape changes font-size in table

My XSL stylesheet's main template calls the template below to set the style
of the data displayed in the page's table.  After each <td> tag in the
table, the line <xsl:call-template name="ApplyStyle"/> calls the template

<xsl:template name="ApplyStyle">
         <xsl:attribute name="STYLE">
             font-family: Verdana;
             font-size: 11px;
             color: black;

When displayed in IE, the font is all the same size for all words shown in
the table.  When displayed in the Netscape browser, however, the font-size
changes with the size of the word.  For example, for the column displaying
"Status", the size of the font for the status "New" is much larger than the
font for the status "Approved" in the same column.  The font of all the
values displayed in the "Rate" column is much smaller than the font for the
words displayed in all of the other columns (which have titles that are
longer than the word "Rate").

Any suggestions on how to set the style/font-size in the stylesheet so that
the table can be displayed correctly in both IE and Netscape?
