yes, did you missed my attachments?
(english your test page output, german original pma)

>> did you  tried adding html {font-size: 100%;} ?

<html ...>
<style type="text/css">
html {font-size: 100%;}

you should also try to set the font to the same type as in pma

or just include the whole css from pma and cut out by trial and error all 
till it changes to what you see now
