my opinion is the same as in the last discussion about that (the page should
be displayed as the user configured his system, btw. it is the same with PHP
4 - webpages makes font smaller cause browsers make them too large, browser
can't make the default smaller cause webpages make them even smaller cause
current browsers make them too large ...) - but i really don't want to stay
in the way for changing this - but i clearly do not agree that this is good
practice or should be recommended usage or does help the user in any way!
