    Question Changin primary and secondary font sizes??

    Is it possible to change the font size of your primary family and not the second and third... etc?

    What I have is:
    Code:
    font: "billy bear's crayons", arial, "times new roman";
    and I would like for the 'crayons' font to display at 12px. Buuut if the visitor does not have the 'crayons' font they get the 'arial' font instead. Well the 'arial' 12px is way bigger than the 'crayons' 12px.

    So can I make the secondary family display at 9px instead?

    Visitors with 'crayons' will se 'crayons' at 12px,
    visitors without 'crayons' will see the arial font but at a 9px.

    Possible with CSS?

    No. Its not in the specs for CSS1, so cannot be done.

    However, try using different units, like px & em , these are surprisingly elastic.
