The problem is that point size used by Node and point size used by CSS are not 
the same.
One uses a 72 DPI and the other 96. Thus the final pixel sizes are different.

I don’t see how to change one or the other without breaking a ton of people.

Maybe adding a global font DPI so that Node can be made to match CSS ?

Suggestions ?
