So what is the best approach to dealing with pt sizes in CSS? Do I multiply 
every pt size by 3/4 in CSS? Will this always result in Node Fonts that are 4/3 
times the specified CSS value?

I assume I can't just use px and expect Node Fonts to have the identical value, 
only in points, regardless of the display.

Maybe Region should have a new attribute called FixCSSPoints that we could set 
after adding style sheets?
