The content appears to be *exactly* the same size, but the font-size
for the tabs appears to be smaller in our versions.

If I were feeling 'feisty' I might say something pithy, like 'You
probably are going crazy...' but I'm not so I'll tell you that the
reason our sites didn't have the font-size adjust buttons was because
they weren't enabled in 'src/documentation/skinconf.xml'. I just
enabled it, as well as:
- compliance links (shows HTML & CSS compliance badges)
- external-link-image (indicates off-site links with mini-image icon)
- and XML file availability (enables re-purposing of content via XML)

Mentioning that it was on the XML Graphics site gave me the clue it
was a preference setting.

Glad I could help... It's been a while since I've delved into Forrest.
In fact, they just released Forrest 0.8, so someone may want to look
into identifying if there's a compelling reason to 'upgrade'. ;-)
