Chapter 22. Web Page Layout > Setting the CSS for the OS

Setting the CSS for the OS

Several inconsistencies between the Mac and Windows operating systems frustrate Web designers who use CSS to design their Web pages, especially when it comes to matching font sizes and colors. Actually, the problem is not with CSS itself, but with the way in which the OSes define font sizes and colors on the screen.

Without getting into the history and technical details, the basic problem is that Windows displays the same size font larger than a Mac does and displays the same colors a bit darker. This situation can lead to a design that may look great on the Mac but may have huge text and dark colors on a PC.
