I might as well jump in and ask for an opinion here. On my site, I play
a few stupid font tricks, but not many. I never specify absolute sizes
or a particular font, though, and it's only things like '<font
size="+2">' and '<font size="-1">'. It's mainly for subtly emphasizing
and de-emphasizing certain sections of the page. It displays well in
text browsers. In the opinion of the group, is this acceptable, or
should the <font> tag be avoided entirely?
