When I was testing a page of mine, I discovered that Opera (7) uses font-size: xx% relative to the last used value, this while IE (6) uses that absolute. When I converted it all to for example font-size: x-small, it worked fine in both browsers.
Is this simple something I need to take in account, or am I doing something wrong?

Hope you can help me out.

Cheers,
Onno

Differences in interpertation between browsers?

IE does seem to treat percentage sizes differently to other browsers... It's certainly something to be taken into account, if only to remind us that we should be using values like x-small, so that the reader can control the actual size for readability.
