Yes. boost.css has many lines like: "FONT-SIZE: 13pt". Specifying the
font-size in points causes an exact pixel count rendering under IE, so you
lose size control as the viewer. This usage of point sizes is indeed quite
obnoxious, bordering on evil. :-) Instead the style sheet should be using
percent and/or relative sizes. For example: "font-size: 150%".

Is this something having to do with the .css? No matter what I do in my
browser, the text size stays the same.
