12px is NOT a relative size, and will mean that users with vision
impairment, etc etc will have trouble resizing the text to suit their
preferences... The relative sizes are things like "small".

You'd have the same problems on any computer where the user has fiddled with
the default font settings.

If you want total useability, you could just use <p>, and let your user's
browser settings take care of it, otherwise, the safest bets are things like

font-size: larger
font-size: 150%
font-size: 1.5em

rather than 12px or 12pt

But we're getting OT rapidly.

Try the CSS newsgroups -- I like this one:
