Chapter 9. Font Properties > font-size-adjust Property

9.8. font-size-adjust Property

The font-size-adjust property gives Web authors control over the legibility of the font displayed. It effectively extends the functionality of the font-size property by addressing an inherent problem with specifying font sizes: not all font sizes are equal. A courier font set to 12 points does not take up the same space on screen as 12-point Times Roman, 12-point Helvetica or just about any other font. You can see this illustrated in Figure 9-15, which uses a number of different fonts all set to the same point size.
