...and a second point.

A little homework exercise for y'all.

Go through that list of websites I listed on my first mail.  Try viewing
them three different ways:

  - With no changes to your default settings.

  - Selecting your preferred fonts.  In this case, point-specific font
    specs or absolute / relative font specs are going to make the chosen
    fonts larger or smaller than preferable.

  - Using the stylesheet I provided.

Report back comparing and contrasting the experiences.
